An important topic of research at The Budapest University of Technology and Economics,
Department of Fluid Mechanics is that of axial flow fans of controlled vortex design.
In this ongoing research, a computational fluid dynamics simulation has been developed
for the further investigation of the flow phenomena developing in the vicinity of
the rotor. In order to fully validate this simulation, detailed velocity measurements
have been carried out on the flow both upstream and downstream of a rotor designed
using a controlled vortex design method incorporating circumferential forward skew.
These measurements have already been used in order to validate the pitchwise averaged
data of the computational fluid dynamics simulation, with this article focusing on
the validation of the pitchwise resolved data.
