Hi, All. The static pressure reported in Fluent is the static pressure we know? I am simulating unsteady low Re pulsating pipe flow. But I can't trust the static pressure data. Any comments are highly appreciated, David

Fluent computes all the pressures in terms of gauge pressure:

pressure absolute=gauge pressure + operating pressure

Don't forget to define the operating pressure in the operating conditions panel.

I hope it will help you.

PS: in Fluent, static pressure=rho*g*h (h=fluid height above the point of calculation).
