I would be very grateful to hear from anyone who has done a numerical simulation of an axial flow fan and has some images to show the flow over the blades.

I am specifically looking for a 110 mm/120 mm diameter 3 or 5-bladed fan which might be used in computer power supply cooling and which has been examined in a duct. Even better still would be to show the surface streamlines, or something else which shows regions of separation on the suction / pressure sides of the blade at flow rates around 40 - 50 litres per second.

Thanks in advance to anyone who can help me out.

Best wishes,

It is easy by using
1. CFX-bladegen
2. CFX-turbogrid
3. CFX (pre,solve and post)
