Axial Fan Design Workshop

This course dives into the design, analysis and optimization tasks that can be undertaken with AxSTREAM for Axial Fans. All registrants will receive a trial software license of AxSTREAM EDU to supplement the subject matter. Students will be able to follow along to the practical exercises detailed throughout the video course.

This course will take attendees through the full design, analysis, redesign and optimization of axial fans and blowers using the AxSTREAM® platform.

The program will start with preliminary design before moving on to meanline and streamline calculations at design and off-design conditions, blade profiling and stacking (including restaggering), geometry import, to finish with 3D FEA and 3D CFD analyses.
