Pression absolue et manometriques untités de pressionsPression absolue et manometriques untités de pressions

The pressure in one point of the network is the sum of energies of dynamic and static pressures. The transformation of energy is reversible or irreversible

the head loss is irreversible loss of pressure because the head loss is converted into heat or noise that we do not know re-transformed into pressure.

The pressure generated by changing altitude or height of load (hydrostatic pressure) is reversible: If the duct up of 1 meter, and down of 1 meter, the balance is zero:l:

the pressure generated by the change in velocity (dynamic pressure) is reversible:If for a given flow a converging cone accelerates the fluid the pressure decreases (see Bernoulli), but if another diverging cone, positioned downstream, slows down the fluid to its original speed, the balance of dynamic pressure is zero:

Absolute pressure and gauge pressure units

The unit of pressure is N/m2 or Pascal (Pa). 1 Pascal represents a force of 1 Newton applied on an area of ​​1 m²: Pressure (pascal) = Force (newton) / Surface(m²)

The pressure generated by a force of 10 N applied to 0.1 m² is equal to the pressure generated by a force of 100 N on 1 m²::

10/0.1=100/1=100 pascals.

This allows to increase the forces depending on pressure surfaces of. (hydraulic cylinders, pressure multipliers ...)

to convert a value from gauge pressure (PG) to absolute pressure (Pas), simply add the atmospheric pressure:

Pabs = PG + Patm

To convert from absolute pressure to pressure gauge, subtract the atmospheric pressure:

Meteorologists use the pressure in millibars.

Within a volume of fluid, pressures types are distinguished depending on the physical phenomena that generate them:

Dynamic pressure (Pascals) = 0.5 x density (kg/m3) x speed² (m / sec)

The sum of the energies of pressure in a same volume of fluid is constant: See bernoulli:

The relationship between pressure and flow capacity is very useful to estimate the output power of a fluid system:

The pressure formula : Pressure = Force / Surface is associated in mecaflux to a unit converter.

mecaflux Standard unit converter::

pressure formula

inMecaflux Standard , the pressures in the ducts are parameterized using the pressure tank (absolute). .

pressure fluids network

To enter a tank pressure other than ambient atmospheric pressure, uncheck the box atm. and enter the absolute pressure.

Attention: reservoir pressures are absolute pressures so if you want to set a gauge pressure (PG), you will have to add the atmospheric pressure (P atm) : Pabs = Patm + PG.

data powers will be updated accordingly ...
