Pressure drop
 
Hello

how can i find the pressure drop across a 2D tube?

Can i use the value given in the pressure contour plot to subtract or do i need to use surface integral to get the pressure?

Please advice

what are your BCs. If you are using Periodic BCs... then its pretty easy Let me know bye Ravi

Hello Ravi, I have periodic BCs and I can not figure out how to get the pressure drop. I tried dp/dz where z-is my streamwise direction the pressure drop I get is different from the pressure gradient in the periodic boundary conditions! After getting this pressure drop how do i use it to get my friction factor since it will be per meter
