Experimental measurements and simulations are carried out to study the performances and the unsteady internal flow fields of a cross-flow fan (CFF), which uses a kind of porous stabilizers proposed by the authors in an attempt to control the noise. The performance curve and sound radiation of the fan as well as instantaneous pressure fluctuations in the flowfield are measured and analysed. Transient calculations of the flowfield are carried out to study the vortical flows inside the fan as well as in the porpous stabilizers. The results show that the porous stabilizers have not produced considerable effect on the cross-flow fan’s performance curve, but the amplitude of the pressure fluctuation and the level of radiated noise are affected. This qualitative study indicates the cross-flow fan noise may be controlled by using the porous stabilizers if the porosity is properly selected.
