GamFlu is on a distinguished road
Hi, I am new user of Fluent. I am simulating steady state, 3D vertcial pipe water flow with (0,0,0) at top end (outlet). I want to see see the hydrostatic pressure at particular points on the heights. I used Operating conditions> operating density (101325 Pa), Gravity option (checked), gravitational acceleration, x=0, y=-9.81m/s2,& z=0, Specified operating density checked and operating density = 0, however I am the values obtained are not similar to one I have from experimental results?

Any suggestions from senior members which can help me improve or correct my results will be appreciated.
