Towards a Fair Centrifugal Fan Database for Off-Design Validation of CFD Simulations

Matthias Probst, Balazs Pritz, Hans-Jörg Bauer
Computational Fluid Dynamics simulations are becoming more and more an integral part in the design and optimization process both in academia and industry. The need for reliable results is great and simulations must be validated with experiments. Especially in off-design conditions of turbomachinery strong whirling and unsteady flow fields are challenging CFD codes. Nowadays, not only the raw validation data and its availability is required but also sustainable data management as an integral
