In light of the bionics engineering point of view, we use the biological non-smooth surface in the surface design of the fan blade in order to reduce the fan noise and improve air flow and efficiency .We design several kinds of Sawtooth-shaped distribution, and apply the non-smooth form on the fan model. We analyzed the acoustic performance of various non-smooth fan blades that was reflected when the fan was rotating. Through the wind tunnel test, we obtained the spectrum map, wind comparison chart, efficiency curve and other important parameters that came from the comparison between smooth and non-smooth models and the noise of the fan. This paper will reveal that the non-smooth shape practically is good for preventing formation of off-body vortex, which is caused by turbulent boundary layer on the vane surface, and it will have reference significance for exploring the mechanism of noise reduction on fan vane.
