Application Cooling fan air flow inside electronic devices is critical for component cooling. Yet traditional representation of the fan by the Pressure-Flow (PQ) curve and swirl ratio make for a simple fan model but over-simplifies the actual physics.

In this narrated interview, Professor Hajime Nakamura, from the National Defense Academy of Japan, discusses how the combination of CFD simulations using Cradle SC/Tetra software and experimental tests were used to explore and improve cooling fan model characterization.
