The dimensionless performances of an axial fan are derived analytically from an arbitrary work distribution. The formulation is illustrated using five different work distributions at a selected operating point and comparing the resulting hydraulic characteristics. A first validation of the formulation is brought by means of RANS and URANS of an axial fan with free vortex work distribution. It is shown that a single RANS prediction at the design point allows predicting the hydraulic characteristic up to 20% off the design flow rate with very good accuracy. Based on these results, a strategy for axial fan design at multiple operating points is proposed.
