How do I simulate a fan without the actual model?

      Hi folks

      I'm trying to model heat transfer in an enclosure that has a inlet vent (blue arrow) and an outlet fan (red arrow). I'm having problems getting the actual geometry of the fan to transfer through to fluent, so I'm going to leave it out. Given I have the rated Air flow and static pressure specifications of the fan, I presume just specify that at the outlet hole? The fan blades are essentially the same diameter of the hole of the outlet. How/where do I actually specify this? Cheers

      Hello,

      Ansys Fluent provides the feature of “Exhaust-fan” in the outlet boundary condition. Please refer to the documentation: 44.7. Boundary Conditions Task Page (ansys.com)
