FloWizard
 
Hi, I'm new to CFD and am just learning FloWizard.

The results summary provides values for Pressure Drop and Total Pressure Drop. Where I'm confused is the Total Pressure drop is lower than the Static Pressure drop, i.e. Total deltaP = 9kPa, but Static deltaP id 11.9kPa.

Total Pressure = Static Pressure + Dynamic Pressure

Is it because losses are occuring and not getting pressure recovery???

Sorry if this is a dumb question.....
