Hi Rob, I have another question. This time is about pressures: static and dynamic pressures.

I have checked some results and I quite don't understand this: static pressure is merely due to the column of water above the analysed cell. Therefore I assume that higher water column higher static pressures, but this is not the case when I check pressures, please see the image below.

Here the water column is higher on the left part of the "I" section than the right side. Still pressures are higher in the right side than the left one. I think I am missing something related how static pressures are estimated.

As far as I understand, dynamic pressure is calculated at the walls by using the velocity next to the cell.

And static pressure is due to gravity as follows;
