What is Static pressure: Definition and 52 Discussions
In fluid mechanics the term static pressure has several uses:
In the design and operation of aircraft, static pressure is the air pressure in the aircraft's static pressure system.
In fluid dynamics, many authors use the term static pressure in preference to just pressure to avoid ambiguity. Often however, the word ‘static’ may be dropped and in that usage pressure is the same as static pressure at a nominated point in a fluid.
The term static pressure is also used by some authors in fluid statics.
I’ve been confused about the term static pressure for quite some time. Different sources use very different definitions. From the problems perspective, it’s usually some external pressure. For example we are having a pool with tiny hole on the bottom which makes water level decrease and it flows...
We have a new AHU installed for a Compounding Pharmacy. The unit has two return fans and two supply fans. They are installed in parallel and are powered by VFDs. In the event of one fan failing, the other fan is supposed to speed up to maintain static pressure in the clean environment. This...
I am trying to mathematically prove the Static Pressure Head equation:
H = p/ρg
How can I prove this equation and thus determine the nature of the relationship between these variables?
In this scenario, we have a compressible flow at 0.99 barA pressure and flowing at 300 m/s velocity and is released into 1 barA pressure. Point is, whether the flow can be released at 1 barA or not at the release pressure is higher than the pressure of the compressible fluid inside the tube. And...
An airfoil section in a wind tunnel has many static ports/holes/taps on its upper and lower surface. These static ports can only read static pressure which acts perpendicularly to the local airfoil surface.
In place A are static ports that read a pressure value of relative -100 Pa . This...
Hello,
I am still perplexed on why the pressure term ##p## in Bernoulli and Euler equations is called "static", even if the fluid is flowing (moving). Are there historical or other specific reasons?
In hydrostastics, the pressure at a certain depth is called hydrostatic which makes sense since...
The rectangular chamber contains inclined perforated plates through which the air passes. At the top there is a blower and at the front as well as back bottom there are openings for air inlet. How do I calculate system resistance and know if a certain blower will be able to overcome it?
I have a problem where I want to find out the static pressure over a city in a water pipe system. As I know the elevations over the city I was first thinking of just using p = rho * g * h, but this should only apply if the pipe system were under water (if I use the density of water at least).
So...

Hi everyone,
Is there any mechanism/method/device to control static pressure?
Noting that, total pressure = static + dynamic pressure.
