Actiflow started by simulating the airflow through the entire vehicle, and compared the simulated fan performance with the specifications of the manufacturer. As such, the CFD simulations were validated. Next, the airflow inside the fan and its housing was analyzed in detail. As a result of this analysis we could formulate several points of improvement.
In the second phase of the project, Actiflow designed a new fan, taking into account the wishes of RAVO for modified dimensions, and the points of improvement formulated in phase 1 of the project. The result of the project was a new design for the fan and its housing, with the desired dimensions, and with an improved efficiency.
