Calculation of a generic pressure loss in dependence of a pressure loss coefficient.
Generally this function is numerically best used for the compressible case if the pressure loss (dp) is known (out of pressures as state variable) and the mass flow rate (M_FLOW) has to be calculated. On the other hand the function dp_pressureLossCoefficient_DP is numerically best used for the incompressible case , where the mass flow rate (m_flow) is known (as state variable) in the used model and the corresponding pressure loss (DP) has to be calculated. See more information.
Type: MassFlowRate (kg/s)
Description: Output for function dp_pressureLossCoefficientt_MFLOW
