Abstract

The main aim of our work is to model and analyze the outer casing and fan of a centrifugal blower. The blower is modeled by taking dimensions from the model itself which is called reverse engineering process. The material used for blower is stainless steel. Analysis is done on the blower for two materials stainless steel and aluminum alloy by applying the pressure. CFD analysis is done on the casing to analyze the amount of heat transfer rate for different velocities.  Computational fluid dynamics, usually abbreviated as CFD, is a branch of fluid mechanics that uses numerical methods and algorithms to solve and analyze problems that involve fluid flows. Computers are used to perform the calculations required to simulate the interaction of liquids and gases with surfaces defined by boundary conditions. Pro/Engineer is used for modeling and ANSYS is used for analysis of the blower outer casing.
