Difference between “Pressure” and “Total Pressure” in the CFX Post Processor

      With a fixed mass flow rate at the outlet and zero pascal opening pressure, I'm trying to find the pressure drop at the outlet of a system. nWhile post-processing, in the functional calculator, I can find Pressure and Total Pressure in the variables selection. Which one to choose and why? (The pressure value is always higher than the total pressure value)nP.S.: The real-time pressure is measured using a vacuum gauge at a point through the flow. n

      Total pressure = static pressure + dynamic headnAnd total pressure should be always highern
