Working out static pressure drop


I am simulating a data centre. I would like to find the static pressure drop along the flow path to allow me to workout the fan work required to pump the air around the room. I got the pressure difference as 34.49?

I am unsure about this…can someone please help?

Thanks :slight_smile:


Hello @STawcasious12 ,

The “Pressure” field in the post-processor shows the hydrostatic pressure (rho * g * h). To analyze delta pressure, you’d need to inspect the “Non-Hydrostatic Pressure” instead.
