Default same static and total temperature problem

preetam69 is on a distinguished road

i am trying to simulate simple pipe flow with mass flow inlet boundary condition at inlet and pressure outlet at outlet.

when i check the mass weighted avg. static temperature at inlet and outlet, it is 850K and when i check mass weighted avg. total temperature at inlet and outlet it is still 850K. in case of mass weighted average velocity it is some where near 200m/s,so there should be difference between static and total temperature.

can someone suggest here what is going on? the problem setup maybe wrong,but when it shows velocity magnitude of about 200m/s,how can the static and the total temperature be same?

I think its refer to the fluid properties.
solve your problem twice:
1-with constant density
2-without constant density
you will be see the difference. in one of them contour of temperature is same but in other one is different.
