Fan Cooling radiator

Hi, i'm new to Autodesk Simulation, so I need your help.


I'm trying to simulate what happens when we attach an fan to a cooling radiator. To begin i just want to see the flow course, with no heat transfer. 


What i'm trying to do is to simulate something like the cooling radiators of a large power transformer:



I have the radiator and fans on Inventor 3D, how can i simulate that on CFD? Does any one have any simple tutorial?


Thanks for your support.

Hi, you can find a lot of tutorials here. I cannot think of any toturial which is specific to you application, but you might want to go through the electronics tutorial for the use of Fan devices. Fan devices may simplify your analysis by representing the fan as a simple geometry but with equivalent flow effects. If you are designing the fan itself, consider going through the centrifugal pump tutorial.
