Hi, I've been considering the design of a fan that sucks air radially and blows axially to resolve a technical problem of a machine. I've looked around for the equations governing the air particles and the angle of the radial blades (angle between a flat blade and a radial line) of the fans, but those equations are mostly developed for radial blowing fans and used to determine the pressure and velocity of air coming OUT radially. I would like to find a formula to determine what blade angle and RPM combination would cause air to be sucked radially and blown axially. Also, how to link constant RPM to the acceleration, velocity and displacement of a particle on the surface of a blade. Any help with this would be welcome... I tried to derive the equations based on free body diagrams, but I guess my physics are a bit rusty!
Thanks in advance for your time and help.
