Design and Material Optimization of Axial Flow Fans
S Faqruddin , P Hari Sankar
An axial fan is a type of a compressor that increases the pressure of the air flowing through it. The blades of the axial flow fans force air to move parallel to the shaft about which the blades rotate. In this thesis, axial flow fan with 10 blades, 9 and 11 blades are designed using theoretical calculations. Unigraphics is used for 3D modeling of the fans. Static, dynamic and CFD analysis is done on the 3 models using the materials steel, S2 Glass Epoxy and Kevlar.
