Chris Lynas

The aerodynamics of turbomachinery, precise CAD, testing, induction motor design and the importance of prime numbers were all topics that I failed to consider when I set out to design a desk fan that looks like a jet engine. In this talk I will describe all of the fascinating things that I only discovered in retrospect as I took a donor desk fan and made something that was worse in almost every single way.
