 August 14, 2003, 20:37 how to visualise the total pressure #1 Anicorl Guest   Posts: n/a Hello, everyone, When I simulate the flow in a single square duct, in the CFX-post, the only pressure can be visual, but the total pressure cannot. I use CFX5.5 version. To visualise the total pressure, how to treat with this case? Would you mind telling me your arrangement? It may give me some ideas to solve my problem. Thanks for your response. Anicorl

You'll find total pressure in that list. Louwrens

I can find there are only pressure, pressure gradient X, pressure gradient Y and pressure gradient Z in the list of available. But I still cann't find total pressure in that list. Anicorl

You did look right at the bottom of the list, at "T" for total pressure? Because the list is sorted alphabetically and total pressure is not located with the other pressure variables... Else you maybe got the special total pressure-less version of CFX 5.5.1 (at a discounted price?) ;-)

In these cases, the file only contains the variables you specify. The final result file should have all variables, including Total Pressure (as Louwrens said). Regards, Glenn

 August 18, 2003, 04:25 Re: how to visualise the total pressure #7 Bart Prast Guest   Posts: n/a If you're running a general fluid case in CFX 5.5.1 you will not get total pressure (only when running ideal gas), as the relation for a general fluid for the total pressure is not trivial anymore (as it is for ideal gas). CFX 5.6 has more capabilities in this direction. So if you want P0 in 5.5.1 run with an ideal gas.

The calculation of total pressure is different for compressible and incompressible flow but for a general, incompressible fluid, the calculation is simple (Pstatic + Pdynamic). Robin
