Abstract:
The scaling laws of fans express basic relationships among the variables of fan static pressure head, volume flow rate, air density, rotational speed, fan diameter, and power. These relationships make it possible to compare the performance of geometrically similar fans in dissimilar conditions. The fan laws were derived from dimensionless analysis of the equations for volumetric flow rate, static pressure head, and power as a function of fan diameter, air density and rotational speed.The purpose of this study is to characterize a fan's performance characteristics at various rotational speeds and ambient pressures. The experimental results are compared to the fan scaling laws.
