single phase hydrostatic pressure problem
Hi all

I am simulating a 100 m long vertical pipe with water flow and want to see the total pressure (operating + dynamic + static + hydrostatic). In operating conditions tab, I am opening gravity and setting the operating density as 0 (to include the body forces). but still there is no option to see the hydrostatic head.

Is there any way to see the real total pressure ? ty.

static and hydrostatic pressure
I suspect you have three terms there: 1) static (or hydrostatic) 2) dynamic 3) operating pressures. I am not sure what you are trying to model but Static and hydrostatic should be the same thing.
