static pressure

Etymology: Gk, statikos, causing to stand; L, premere, to press
a condition of equalized blood pressure throughout the body when the heartbeat is stopped. A nonmoving fluid exerts a uniform pressure in all directions.

static pressure

1. The pressure in the circulatory system between pulses.
2. Pressures that are present in a system when any variables that may impact the system are minimized.

The Vane Axial and Super High Performance fan series feature specially designed blades that not only provide high CFM values, but also focus air movement to push/pull air through obstacles in high static pressure applications.
These data indicated that the fans with ECMs were able to provide relatively constant airflow regardless of changes in discharge static pressure.
The jetting flow under different direction conditions can affect the distribution of wall shear stress and static pressure which results in the variation of the model's viscous resistances and pressure drag;
Global quantities such as static pressure rise, horsepower, and static efficiency were compared between calculation results and measured data.
For the same static pressure we obtained the diagrams corresponding to these charges.
Under steady state conditions the inlet static pressure across the nozzle, the delivery static pressure across the delivery duct, the input field and armature voltages and input field and armature currents are noted down.
They noted that vortices produced between the bubble and the forming cone can cause a negative static pressure around the bubble, which was assumed to stabilize the bubble.
The reduced capacity resulted from the improved efficiency of the water-cooled CRAC units at higher return air temperatures and the elimination of the need to over-provision airflow to compensate for the wide variation in static pressure typically found under the access floors of most data centers.
You either use a static pressure or a "walking" technique, when a digit is bent and straightened to move it forward.
