 January 24, 2006, 18:00 What pressure profile to provide to ABAQUS ??? #1 thomas Guest   Posts: n/a Here is a quick question. I am having a high velcoity (60 m/s) flow impacting onto some blades. After convergence i am extracting the pressure values onto the blade to provide it to abaqus to check the stress contour. Which Pressure Profile Should I use ? The Static Pressure Profile or the TOTAL Pressure Profile - Static + Dynamic?. In my head it is the Total Pressure profile to account the pressure due a fluid momentum but i am asking for a comfirmation here. THANKS in adavnce !!!

Thanks for your quick answer !

Mr. Luca is wright, you should use static pressure! Why? The answer is simple: imagine only how these two pressures are measured (static and total). - static pressure is measured using a gauge with a hole parallel to the main flow direction, so it measures actually the pressure that THE WALL THAT WOULD HAVE EXISTED THERE (instead of the hole!!) SHOULD HAVE FELT, with the fluid IN MOTION. - total pressure is measured using a gauge with a hole normal to the flow direction, at the end of a tube, so it actually measures THE SAME FLUID pressure, in the same spot, but STATIONARY, so total pressure is the pressure that a wall would feel if the fluid was completely stationary. Some people may get confused a little, and say something like: what about the stagnation point? Well, that's THE ONLY POINT where Pstatic=Ptotal in a moving fluid. I hope this was a good enough explanation. Best wishes, Razvan
