Pressure contour on different faces are plotted for every angle of incidence.
From the optimized pressure contour diagram, velocity contour diagram, and cavitation contour diagram, it can be seen that the effect of the initial design structure of centrifugal pump has been significantly improved, and the overall performance of centrifugal pump has a certain promotion.
shows the static pressure contour obtained around the impeller of the turbine.

The flow behavior for both geometries showed opposite characteristics in term of velocity and pressure contour. At the intersection of both channels, the bifurcation flow exhibited decreasing velocity while the velocity for confluence flow was increased.
In addition, the city is looking at digital terrain modeling and contouring of the city to complete pressure area analyses and pressure contour maps for our water system.
Figures 7 and 8 compare the velocity and pressure contours between single-hole nozzle spray and multiorifice nozzle spray, respectively.
Figure 7 illustrates the computational results of wall pressure contours in the infant, child, and adult airway models during inspiration and expiration.
Pressure contours around the steps with different height ratios ([xi] = 1.866 and [xi] = 9.33) are plotted in Figure 5.
Figures 4 and 5 show the transversal total pressure contours and streamlines around the ridge profile at M = 1.50 (close to design limit).
