I’m working with a charity, Hoveraid to design a hovercraft for humanitarian work in remote communities. I’d like to analyse the flow of air from the lift fan round and down under the skirt and out the sides between the skirt and the ground.
I want to apply a velocity at the circular duct inlet which is where the fan will be. Longer term I’ll want to apply some swirl from the fan but a linear velocity will do for now. I can’t seem to work out how to do it as it’s in the middle of air volume and not at the boundary. I suspect I’m being a bit slow…
Any tips hive-mind?
