      I have 3 inlet fans spinning at 1500 RPM ( =25 Rounds Per Seconds )

      Pushing 250 [m^3/h] { 250/(60*60) *1.204 ~ 0.084 kg/s }

      "1.204 is the air dencity at 20 degrees C"


      I have 3 Coordinate systems, one for each fan!

      I just want to understand what values are required for:

      Axial component

      Radial Component

      Theta Component

      Is axial the velocity of the outer edge of the fan?

      Radial should be 0

      Theta is radians per second for the outer edge of the fan?


      Thank you in advance :)

      If you have already defined your local coordinate systems why not directly using them in the boundary specification?n

      1.3 will correspond to the local z axis. So that will be your local axis of rotation.n

      1.3 will correspond to the "local z" axis. So that will be your local axis of rotation./forum/discussion/comment/98399#Comment_98399

      thank you, now I have one question answered !nOne to go!n

      Theta Velocity Component is the velocity component in circumferential direction and this is meter per second: Velocity dimension.n

      that's the Axial component! nif not then the axial and theta is the same!!!n
