Fan s are used all over the world in a wide verity of industries and other purposes. Some of the important applications are in steam power station, ventilation system, cooling of electric motor and generator, and many industrial processes. Many researchers and engineers are making their efforts to design fans to fulfill the particular requirement of application in the most efficient way. The criterion of cost of fan, ease in manufacture and conservation of energy are other also to be considered in design. Sever al studies are available of various researchers in analysis and simulation of axial and centrifugal fans. Axial flow fans have also been designed and simulated by the researchers. Simulation of performance of axial flow fans and design of various blade sec tions of the axial flow fans have been studied experimentally or numerically. The present work comprises the numerical study of the axial flow fan section aerofoil. The objective of the study is to simulate the flow features around the aerofoil of particul ar design for three different values of the striking angle. The results are obtained using FLUENT in the form of velocity vectors at the leading edge, across the aerofoil and at the trailing edge. The contours of pressure and turbulence are also shown for the three cases.
