 July 20, 2006, 03:34 How to calculate ave dinamic pressure? #1 Nicola Guest   Posts: n/a Hello, I need to calculate ave dinamic pressure on a surface. I defined a new variable Dinamic_Pressure=0.5*Density*Velocity^2 then I calculated ave dinamic pressure in two ways: 1) areaAve(Dinamic_Pressure)@[Surface] 2) massFlowAve(Dinamic_Pressure)@[Surface] In the second case I have a dinamic pressure higher than first (about 200 Pascal). What is the best way to calculate it? Thanks

MassFlowAve is usefull for calculating averages on 2D patches through which fluid flows e.g. inlets and outlets.
