Fan and blower systems are ubiquitous and can be found in applications ranging from engine cooling, industrial and residential HVAC systems, thermal packaging for electronics, and more.

Configurations range from simple shrouded and unshrouded axial fans, to mixed flow and centrifugal blowers, which typically have a casing or volute to direct the flow downstream of the rotor. Simulation tools are today playing an important role in the design and analysis of these systems, with the goal of increasing performance and reliability while reducing noise and operating costs.

ANSYS 12.0 brings a wealth of tools for fan and blower design and analysis, building upon the long-standing strength and reputation of ANSYS software for rotating machinery applications.

This webinar will highlight the creation of work flows in ANSYS Workbench, incorporating 1-D and 2-D design tools, both general and turbo-specific geometry and meshing tools (ANSYS DesignModeler, ANSYS Meshing, ANSYS BladeModeler, and ANSYS TurboGrid), CFD Solvers (ANSYS CFX 12.0 and ANSYS FLUENT 12.0), and post-processing (ANSYS CFD-Post).

The workflows permit multiple analyses to be set up for parametric study, which is ideal for producing fan curves, examining geometry changes, combining flow and mechanical stress calculations, and even performing design optimization. In addition, some of the latest physical models and methods which are applicable to fan and blower analysis will be described.
