Shrouded-fans play a key role in the U.S. Army's transportation systems. A preliminary design tool capable of simulating the flow field in different flight conditions for predicting the shroud and fan performance can significantly reduce design costs. Thisproposal offers a computational tool that will lay the foundation for true transient wake calculations of a shrouded-fan in axial and non-axial flight conditions. Phase I served to establish the proof-of-concept for such a tool. The central theme of phaseII is to convert this proof-of-concept to a user-friendly design tool with the paradigm of
