RÉSUMÉ

This paper presents a comparative investigation of numerical flow simulations and the experimental data of a piezoelectric fan by particle image velocimetry. It investigates the fluid mechanics of a piezoelectric fan operating in its vibration frequency mode. The experimental results show that the optimal driving frequency for the piezoelectric fan is 60 Hz. At this frequency, the thin blade of the piezoelectric fan reaches its maximum vibration amplitude. The flow field visualization obtained in the experiments shows that the amplitude of the fan blade directly affects flow velocity. The vortex structures exhibit irregular motion once they separate from the blade tip. The phase measured PIV results are presented in terms of vorticity and show the formation of a horse shoe vortex. A maximum flow velocity of 1.7 m/s is obtained. It was also observed that the vibrating blade induces a pair of vortices, one clockwise and one counterclockwise. The blade vibration induces a pair of vortices around the blade tip. The blade inhale and propulsion air flow induces a jet-like motion at the tip during a cycle. Its fast blade motion achieves thermal cooling.
