Abstract
Guiding cone angle is an important parameter in the design of the spray fan, the difference of guiding cone angle has a significant impact on the spray effect and service life of the fan. Based on this, the numerical simulate of fluid-solid coupling for the pan is carried out by using the RNG k-ε model, turbulence equations and SIMPLEC algorithm, then analyze the fan’s changes of the flow field and structural under the different cone angle. Simulation results show that with the increase of the cone angle, the pressure and speed of the flow field, the stress and strain of the blade also increased, but when it over a certain angle, the result will decreases. Further analysis shows when the guiding cone angle of the fan is 20°, the performance of the fan is optimal. The results of this analysis can provide a theoretical basis for the design of the fan.
