Go to: Report--> Surface integrals--> Report type (Area weighted Average)--> Field variable (Pressure, either static, dynamic or total). Choose the inlet and outlet from the list and find the difference to get the pressure drop.

pressure drop can be found out in fluent by looking at the values of total pressure at the required surface and findin the difeerence of it. in fluent go to SURFACE INTERGRALS in REPORT and select the area weighted average ... select tghe surfaces .sa apply ...see the pressure ... dont confuse with net... subtract yhe higher and lower ll give drop....
