I Pressure Drop value location

  1. Jun 12, 2017 #1

    I am calculating pressure drop through a pipe using CFD, which will be validated with hand calculations and experiments for a project. When I take results from my software, I can either take the pressure at a specific point (assume the centreline of the pipe) or I can take an average pressure of the pipe cross section.

    When we measure pressure drop experimentally or using calculations, is this usually a specific value in the pipe centreline, or as an average over the surface?

    If a pitot tube is used to measure pressure it will be situated in the pipe centerline.
