Static Pressure

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, static pressure is the pressure at a nominated point in a fluid. Many authors use the term static pressure in place of pressure to avoid ambiguity.
  • The term static pressure is also used by some authors in fluid statics.

Famous quotes containing the word pressure:

    Under the pressure of the cares and sorrows of our mortal condition, men have at all times, and in all countries, called in some physical aid to their moral consolations—wine, beer, opium, brandy, or tobacco.
    Edmund Burke (1729–1797)
