Why is the stagnation pressure equal to the atmospheric pressure in the test section of an open-circuit wind tunnel?

I understand Bernoulli's Principle at different sections of the wind tunnel (static and dynamic pressure), and that it is equal to the atmospheric pressure (hence open-circuit). However, I don't ...

Can a fluid have more or less static pressure than atmospheric pressure in atmosphere?

We assume static pressure of a fluid coming out of a pipe or nozzle of gas turbine with high temperature and velocity is equal to atmospheric pressure, which confuses me for some point. Does it mean ...

Find pressure, given 2 velocities at open end of pipe and inside pipe, at different elevations

There is a tube travelling horizontally, 8m below the ground, with a diameter 15cm. It then turns upwards and at a height of 1.75m above the ground, it shoots water out with a velocity 32 m/s. Find ...

Incompressible Fluid Flow in horizontal pipe segment which encounters tilted pipe segment - Continuity Equation

Say that we have water flowing horizontally in a pipe of constant diameter. The continuity equation for incompressible fluids, which is a statement of mass conservation, guarantees that the flow rate ...

Routing the flow from an axial "box" fan

I have a project where I need to generate a certain flow rate to levitate a ping pong ball using the Bernoulli principle. From some rough calculations, I found that it would take about 30 CFM through ...

Increasing air velocity through F1 car diffuser

I am looking into F1 car aerodynamics for a course that I am taking. I understand that because of Bernoulli's law, when the velocity increases, the pressure decreases, which is good for F1 cars if we ...

Pressure variation through reduction (Bernoulli) and pipe wall design

Let's say I have a pipe followed by a reduction and then another smaller diameter pipe continues. Using conservation of mass, the flow through the smaller diameter pipe will have higher velocity. If I ...

Isn't the Bernoulli equation just a special case of the Steady-flow equation?

This question is about the following two energy balance equations (assuming no energy input/output): Bernoulli: $\frac{p}{\rho} +\frac {v^2}{2} + zg = const.$ Steady-flow: $u +\frac {p}{\rho} +\frac{...

Water flow rate generated by a pressure steam tank

I have a 5 $m^3$ capacity tank that generates steam with a heat exchanger. This tank is under 15 bar pressure. The water in the bottom part of the tank does not completely vaporize because there is ...

Venturi Duct flow

When water flows through the converging side of a Venturi, why is it that the total head (experimental and calculated) is not constant? Could it be due to losses? Also, why was it that a lot more ...
