Trying to wrap my head around inlet guide vane control of big fans (3-12,000hp), and stumbled across this little gem of a paper.

Shannow - your posts intrigue me. You must be a mechanical engineer doing design work, eh?

a 12,000hp fan sounds like something that'd be used in a wind tunnel. Especially if you're trying to figure out how to manipulate the airflow mechanics...
