|Investigation of the Effects of Single Fan Failure in a Series Fan Arrangement with Two Fans|
|Keywords: fan, failure, series|
|When modeling a series fan arrangement with two fans, it is normally assumed that it does not make any difference in airflow through the fan assembly whether either the front or the rear fan that fails. This study is an attempt to determine the parameters effecting fan airflow in a failed series fan arrangement. The study addresses both the failed fan location and the spacing between the fans.|
