Hello,

I'm a little puzzled at the moment by my results and maybe this is a kind of stupid question, but I kindly would appreciate if anybody could give me hint on the following:
Pressure p in simpleFoam means total pressure or the static pressure?

The pressure in simpleFoam is the static pressure divided by density.
