Hi, I am trying to simulate an actuator disk to show results as a drone propeller. Firstly I calculate the pressure drop of the actual drone propeller (MRF) between upper and lower surface (see image) and now I am trying to set this pressure drop onto the disk actuator simulation by setting a plain surface with the diameter of the propeller as a fan. My main problem is that if I only set the pressure drop as a constant I do not get accurate results, so I would like to know if I should also set the swirl – velocity specification on the fan dialog box and if so, how can I get those parameters from the actual propeller simulation? Since I am a bit lost right now.


Thanks in advance.
