To shorten your quest:
Electric Ducted Fans do not ....... Can not......"compress air"......
They only move air/increase flow......they DO NOT compress.
If you restrict or block the airflow (attempt to compress air) the fan simply stalls (aerodynamic stall of the blades)

You are probably better off posing this type of question in the "modeling science" forum.
