 April 13, 2015, 05:43 Which macro yields the absolute pressure value? #1 Senior Member   Join Date: Mar 2013 Location: B'lr Posts: 127 Rep Power: 6 Hi, From the solution data it is possible to obtain absolute pressure value at each node or cell center. In FLUENT manual I couldn't find the macro for absolute pressure. Which macro yields the absolute pressure value.? Thanks in advance

But in the solution data, there are absolute, total, static pressure, etc values are available so only confused to access absolute pressure.

All pressures that you specify and all pressures computed or reported by ANSYS Fluent are gauge pressures. So I'd guess the pressure reported by the macro is indeed a gauge pressure. Then: P_abs = P_operating + P_gauge. So, to get the absolute pressure, simply add the macro to the operating pressure. To differentiate a bit more clear: Static pressure: The static gauge pressure Dynamic pressure: Velocity pressure (0.5*density*velocity) absolute pressure: total static pressure; the gauge + operating pressure total pressure: dynamic + static gauge pressure Does this answer your question? shivakumar likes this.
