Which pressure is measure using measuring device in a pipe flow. My first intuition that it is the static pressure. This is confirmed by this Wikipedia article (link)
The concepts of total pressure and dynamic pressure arise from Bernoulli's equation and are significant in the study of all fluid flows. (These two pressures are not pressures in the usual sense - they cannot be measured using an aneroid, Bourdon tube or mercury column.)
But I came across another document from MIT course (link) where the author says:
The dynamic pressure is the difference between the total pressure—that is, the pressure you would actually measure at the given point in the moving fluid, with some appropriate instrument—and the static pressure.
To the best of my knowledge the total pressure can be only measure if we bring the fluid to rest, e.g. using a pitot tube. That's why it's sometimes called stagnation pressure.
So, the question know is which quote is true? or there is a specific device that can measure the total pressure while the fluid is flowing?
Another question: in the MIT document the author says:
the dynamic pressure is zero in a stationary fluid, and also in a fluid that is in uniform motion, in the sense that there are no accelerations anywhere in the fluid (Figure 1-3).
So, why the dynamic pressure is zero in uniform flow? What is the link between dynamic pressure an acceleration? Note that in Figure 1-3 this isn't evident!!!!
