A finite element based method has been developed for computing time-averaged fluid-induced radial excitation forces and rotor dynamic forces on a two-dimensional centrifugal impeller rotating . The study on the fan impeller of the wind fire extinguisher, describes the type and structure of the fan impeller, and static strength and modal analysis are applied on the impeller by using the finite element method, replacing the traditional calculation method of strength and stiffness. The total deformation, stress distribution and vibration characteristics of the fan impeller are .

This will require a finite element analysis. Note with an older constant speed fan the life could be considerably reduced by using variable speed control and new impellers may be required. Carry out either a bump test of the existing impeller or an engineering analysis to determine impeller natural frequencies and ensure no dynamics problems. The air passes the blades twice at the inlet and the outlet of the impeller while a large vortex is noticeable inside the impeller which is located in the blading near the stabilizer. The numerical results are compared to Laser Doppler Velocity measurements and to steady calculations obtained by replacing the blades by a rotating force field.

Mackerle, Finite Element Methods, A Guide to Information Sources, Elsevier, Amsterdam, The paper deals with determination of modal parameters of exhaust fan impeller. The aim of performed analysis was to investigate whether resonance is the cause of excessive operational vibration of the fan. The paper describes results of experimental measurement by which the natural frequencies of non-rotating impeller were determined. The resonance frequencies .
