Calculation of pressure loss in thick edged orifices with sharp corners at overall flow regime for incompressible and single-phase fluid flow through an arbitrary shaped cross sectional area (square, circular, etc.) considering constant influence of surface roughness.
Generally this function 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. On the other hand the function dp_thickEdgedOverall_MFLOW 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. See more information.
Type: Pressure (Pa)
Description: Output for function dp_thickEdgedOverall_DP
