Pressure vs velocity is more commonly known as the PV value in the engineering world.
It is a calculation that is essential when ensuring the correct material is being specified for applications. But where does this calculation come from and why is it important to understand? Before you read this, if you would rather speak to someone about this topic as opposed to reading it, give us a call. If not, read on.
Back to the beginning
To understand the complexity and necessity of the relationship of pressure versus velocity, it is important you understated the history.
It all starts with tribological properties of materials. “Tribo” is the Greek word for “rubbing or rub”. The study of the relationship between friction an...
