anna_67 is on a distinguished road

I have two questions:

1. If the following boundary conditions are set:

inlet - total pressure
outlet - static pressure

what does this mean in reality?

2. How the pressure drop could be obtained by the above mentioned boundary conditions?

This is discussed in the documentation, please have a read.

Don't forget total pressure includes the component for the dynamic head. So the most meaningful comparison of pressure drop is usually between total pressure in and total pressure out.
