FeaturesThis test machine combines a standard simulator, in this case a MFS Magnum, and a shrouded axial fan.
The shroud allows for variable aerodynamic loading of the fan blades. The fan shaft is driven from the MFS rotor shaft and is fitted with an encoder and tachometer.
The axial fan is located at the drive train end for easy access. The blade pitch is adjustable and the blades may be instrumented with strain gages.
