# What is Stagnation: Definition and 35 Discussions

The Era of Stagnation (Russian: Период застоя, Period zastoya, or Эпо́ха засто́я, Epoha zastoya), meaning Stagnation Period, is a term coined by Mikhail Gorbachev in order to describe the negative way in which he viewed the economic, political, and social policies of the Soviet Union that began during the rule of Leonid Brezhnev (1964–1982) and continued under Yuri Andropov (1982–1984) and Konstantin Chernenko (1984–1985). It can sometimes be called the Brezhnevian Stagnation in English.

1. ### A Is there a stagnation point in turbulent flows not involving solids?

When two free jets collide at some impingement angle (not necessarily a head on collision), the usual assumption is that in the impingement zone there is a stagnation point around which stream lines are deflected. From this stagnation point, a thin liquid sheet is created, which eventually...
2. ### What should be the mathematical way out of QFT's decades stagnation?

So which should be the best strategy to avoid this hurdle: maybe try and look for a different mathematical object as quantum fields? or rather try and avoid their multiplication in our ways to handle them to obtain predictions? any other ideas? perhaps leave it altogether as not very many...
3. ### Regarding Standard atmospheric conditions

Why do we take ISA conditions(Atm. Temperature, Atm. Pressure) as static and not stagnation? Thanks
4. ### Why doesn't the stagnation temperature change in a stator?

I am studying the rotary compressor and I have understood that the stagnation pressure and stagnation temperature both increase in the rotor stage (as energy is being added). I also read that in the stator stage the stagnation temperature remains a constant but there is loss of stagnation...
5. ### Stagnation point and a water dam

Hello Forum, I am clear on what the pressure at a point ##P## is on the wall of heigh of a dam at a certain depth ##d## below the water free surface: ## \rho g d+P_atm##. The deeper we go the higher the pressure. Now let's consider a different scenario: there is initially no water and water...

12. ### Surge Pressure Stagnation Pressure Static Pressure Bernoulli

I have trouble understanding why Stagnation Pressure equals Total Pressure when we apply Bernoullis theorem to a constriction. Two different scenarios Scenario 1.A pipe has pressure p_1 , its flow is velocity v_1 and a diameter a_1 ,it has no restriction along its length. Total Pressure Tp_1...
13. ### Pitot Tube will not measure stagnation pressure

I have made a pitot tube that I am using to measure the velocity of air in a pipe. First, I placed the probe into the pipe such that the hole in the probe was parallel to the flow to obtain static pressure. It did this successfully and I proved this using a piezometer. However, I then turned the...
14. ### The impact of a rope versus the stagnation pressure of a fluid

Let \lambda be a linear density of a rope which is moving into a scale at velocity v. The additional force on the scale due to the collision is given as \frac{d p}{d t} = v\frac{d m}{d t} = \lambda v^2 Where as the stagnation pressure from stopping a column of water in excess of static...

20. ### Stefan–Boltzmann law: Which applies? Stagnation temperature or static temperature?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stagnation_temperature It appears to me that if we have two fluids which are in "heat conduction" contact with each other, then the body with the highest stagnation temperature will transfer heat to the body with the lowest stagnation temperature. However, it...

Using the Fay-Riddell correlation, I can solve for the stagnation point heat transfer but I'm running into a snag. I'm doing this for a thermo-chemical equilibrium assumption. I'm confused with the enthalpy at the wall. I'm assuming a wall that is not adiabatic, but at some wall temp Tw. If I...

Chomsky says in this video that "Real wages have either stagnated or declined for about 30 years." A commenter says: "Real wages for working people stagnated in the late 70's, started a steady decline around 1980, and they continued to decline right through the "so-called Clinton Recovery...
28. ### Stagnation pressure and Stagnation Points

Homework Statement Hi there, Im currently doing my A2 physics project on Supersonic flight. I am really struggling to understand the concept of Stagnation pressure, it just really hasn't clicked yet. I understand that the fluid 'responds' to pressure waves by building up stagnation pressure and...
29. ### Understanding Stagnation Pressure in Cooling Fans

Okay. So I am slowly being introduced to some CFD modelling and stagnation pressure keeps coming up as one of the variables. We are modelling coolers, which of course have a fan(s) that distribute the cool air. What exactly are we saying if a fan has high or low stag pressure? I looked...

Hi, does anyone know the definition of "stagnation pressure" at the tip of a slender body with attached oblique shockwave? Since the shockwave is completely "attached" to the pointing tip, I think that there is no flow "behind" the shock at the tip. So I proceed to think that the...
