This boundary condition can be applied to assign either a pressure inlet
or outlet total pressure condition for a fan.
The switch nonDimensional can be used for a non-dimensional table. It needs
inputs rpm and dm of the fan.
The nonDimensional flux for the table is calculate as :
phi = 4.0*mDot/(rho*sqr(PI)*dm^3*omega)
where:
dm is the mean diameter.
omega is rad/sec.
The nonDimensinal pressure :
Psi = 2 deltaP/(rho*(sqr(PI*omega*dm)))
where:
deltaP is the pressure drop
The non-dimensional table should be given as Psi = F(phi).
