Tests of axial flow fans designed by lattice theory


Bowen, William H. (1938) Tests of axial flow fans designed by lattice theory. Master's thesis, California Institute of Technology.


This paper presents the tests and calibrations which were made on three axial flow fan units of the G.A.L.C.I.T. Boundary Layer Removal Model in order that operating parameters might be developed from the data. The tests serve also as a check on the success achieved in the design of fans using the Lattice Theory. (cf. Theoretical Aerodynamics Lecture Notes of Dr. Clark B. Millikan).
