I have never used the point goal in all my years of using Flow which is approaching 20. I suspect the issue is that you are comparing total pressure to static pressure though from what was shown its hard to tell. No qualification is given in the point parameters on which pressure it is giving you but maybe that was in the selection list.
I have never used a point goal to instrument a model because all sensors have a finite volume. I put in a small volume typically when I instrument a model and use volume goals. These goals and volume parameters provide the same array of values for a given parameter like pressure - total, static and dynamic.
Thanks for the response Bill. I havn't used Point Parameters before either until today when I had a bit more time to tinker with the results, and that is when I saw this discrepancy. I think you nailed it with what pressure value a point parameter is actually giving me. I can re-run the simulation and record a static pressure goal at the point and see if that correlates with the point parameter.
Also thanks for the tip on the small volume goal. Ill look into giving that shot.
just in case: remember to disable the volume you use for the goal but you probably knew that.
