ANALYSIS OF A 3D FAN USING MRF APPROACH IN ANSYS ICEPAK

An Icepak 3D fan object may sometimes behave differently from real fan behavior. Typically this is due to flow features like swirl and centrifugal spread resultant from the spinning fan rotor as well as the rotor blade geometry. In an Icepak fan based setup, this swirl is estimated and calculated off a 2D annular flow face rather than off the physical surfaces of the blade. The MRF approach allows for a more accurate representation of the internal geometry of the fan and therefore results in a better modeling of the flow features. In Icepak MRF simulations, the actual blade geometry is modeled as a CAD block object and a fluid cylinder rotates into contact with the surfaces to create a spinning flow. In this project, the Overview on advantages of Moving reference fan vs fan object in capturing the swirl, how important it is in capturing the physics and also the type of mesh and refinement level required at different zones while doing a mrf fan simulation are discussed.
