Default Head loss
Posts: n/a
Hi All

A small question in Fluent. I want to calculate the head loss(Pressure difference) between the inlet and the out let. I used Report-->Surace Integrals-->Area weighted ave--> Pressure.... Here there are different options like static pressure, Dynamic, total, Absolute pressure etc.... So which option i have to use to calculate the pressure difference or the head loss.

Thanks in advance

u can take either total or Absolute pressure drop....and i would go for the total pressure drop since it takes care of both static and synamic part....
