 December 4, 2008, 10:59 Total and Static Pressure drop #1 Jaggu Guest   Posts: n/a Hi Could any body tell me.Is there any scenario where total pressure drop will be less than the static pressure drop.? Generally which Pressure drop will be used to design the system?where shall i get the complete information on static and total pressure drop?if any body has link or e paper please pass to me Thanks in advance

 December 9, 2008, 06:27 Re: Total and Static Pressure drop #3 krish Guest   Posts: n/a Hi...Lets arrive at the answer like this, Total pressure drop = Static pressure drop + Dynamic pressure drop. Total pr drop will be less than stat pr drop provided the dynamic pr drop is negative. That means the the velocity of the fluid is increasing therefore dynamic pressure drop increases than that of static pressure drop. when there are many recirculations in the fluid domain, total pressured drop will be more than that of static pressure drop. I guess what i analysed is right..Let me know if u have any other queries on this issue

Here is the exact and correct explaination for the question you have asked. Total pr = st. pressure + dynamic pressure but total pr drop caanot be equal to st pr drop + dynamic pr. drop. Dynamic pressure is the pressure which you can measure only at a point. Generally we cannot infer any thing by analysing the total pr drops and static pr drops. By looking at the total pr contours we can infer where there are recirculations etc. okay.... anand.jittanakatti likes this.
