Ceiling fan in room - convective heat transfer analysis

Hi there! I hope everyone is keeping well :slight_smile:

Iโ€™d like to do a convective heat transfer analysis, involving a ceiling fan in a room. I would like to observe the difference in average temperature, when the fan is turned on at 21 rad/s, vs when the fan is not turned on at all.

My project link is here

However, I am having difficulties modelling the fan as a rotating object.

Does anyone have any projects I can take reference from?

Hi @e0309248,

Please make good use of the public projects section. โ€™ Ceiling fanโ€™ returns my project (2nd hit): SimScale

And a project from @Retsam (5th hit):

Hope this helps,


Hi @dlynch, these are good reference projects! Thank you for pointing them out to me
