Abstract
Cornerstone Research Group Inc. (CRG) proposes to develop the next generation of vaneaxial fans through extensive aerodynamic study coupled with state-of-the-art motor and controller technologies. Analytical tools to aid in the development of the next generation vaneaxial fans will be implemented to provide rapid tradespace assessment for new fan designs, which will be followed with computational fluid dynamics (CFD) investigations to refine fan configurations for maximum efficiency. The analytical tools and computational methods established for the design process will significantly improve vaneaxial fan design capability over current empirical and graphical techniques employed by conventional manufacturers. The initial investment in the development of these tools will ultimately position CRG and its supporting team to deliver next-generation fans with higher capability and comparable cost to current technology. This innovative design will not only provide increased performance
