Evaluating CFD Models of Axial Fans by Comparisons with Phase-Averaged Experimental Data 2001-01-1701

In order to improve the reliability of fan design and the prediction of underhood engine cooling based on CFD, Valeo Motors and Actuators and Michigan State University have teamed up to develop a comprehensive experimental and numerical database. The initial focus has been on the simulations of the isolated fan environment in two different test facilities. To understand the discrepancies observed in the comparisons of integral performances, the first detailed hot wire measurements on the MSU test facility have been collected. The data are split into mean velocity components and RMS fluctuations. The former are successfully compared to three detailed turbulent numerical simulations of the corresponding facilities.
