Hi every one.
Iâ€™m trying to understand the basics of fluid dynamics, and hope there is some here one who can help me explain this.
So letâ€™s see if I understood this correctly.
An air stream blowing across a surface would cause a lower pressure on the surface then as if the air where at rest. If the surface where perforated with small holes, and the air under the surface where still. Then the air stream would pull air trough the holes due to the venturieffect. Now, if the perforated surface where the top of an air tight box, this would cause an underpressure in the box. Is this correct?
So this is my question: How do I calculate these pressures, with different airspeeds? Say, 1m/s 5m/s and 15m/s.
I assume there is 4 different pressures to take in to account.
P1: air at rest, this could be normal atmospheric pressure at sea level.
P2: pressure on a cross section, perpendicular to the stream. Guess this would be the ram pressure.
P3: pressure on a point drifting with the stream.
P4: pressure in the box.

Thanks.
I also found this site with, in my opinion, good and basic explanations of physics.

Iâ€™m still struggling to grasp the concepts, but Iâ€™ll get trough it.The math is not my strongest side. :)
