This article presents a new fan testing concept which was developed by the University of Braunschweig. The aim of the concept is to provide an experimental setup for integrated jet engine fan investigations. This integrated setup includes a full bypass model with nacelle geometry in order to obtain all aerodynamic interaction effects. Since these interactions have a strong dependency from fan inlet conditions the facility provides wind tunnel capacities. Generating both uniform and angle of attack inlet conditions it is possible to investigate fan performance during the most critical operating points of a civil flight mission. The main innovation of the wind tunnel is the crosswind concept for generating angle of attack conditions in case of a non-pitchable fan unit. Numerical investigations in this paper are intended to validate this new concept by means of typical angle of attack simulations. The results show that the crosswind concept is able to generate equivalent cp-characteristics as obtained for the reference simulations at the nacelle 6 o‘clock and 12 o‘clock positions.
