friction losses

how do you calculate the friction losses in a Diffuser flow using CFX? I would like to separate out the frictional losses from the other losses that occurs in a diffuser.

Re: friction losses

Depends on exactly what you are trying to get. Some possibilities are to look at the wall shear stress or total pressure of the fluid or otherwise you can do a momentum balance from the inlet to outlet.
