This work introduces a method by using an empirical formula to quickly predict windage caused power loss of hard disk drives. The results obtained by the empirical formula are compared with those obtained by computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations and validated by the experimental measurement data. Good agreement is observed among these three sets of data.
