Static Head

Static Head

It is the pressure (P) exerted at any point by the height of the substance above that point. To convert from feet of head to pounds per square inch, the following relationship is used

P = Pressure, lbf/in2 (or psi).

γ = Specific Weight of substance

lbf/ft3 (for water = 62.3 lbf/ft3).

H= Static head, ft.

Conversions :

1 psi = 2.31 ft

1 bar = 10.19 m

1 m = 3.28 ft

1 bar = 14.5 psi

1 m = 9.81 KPascal
