I'm trying to model an elevator shaft in IES to study the pressure difference between the top of the shaft and the ground floor. But I can't find how the program can output the pressure difference (it generates cfm and temperature). I couldn't find anything in the manuals or online. Has anyone done this before?

I don't think you can get a pressure output from MacroFlow, but you can use those MacroFlow results as boundary conditions for MicroFlow. The MicroFlow CFD results do give pressure.

yeah their support confirms that I need to use microflow to get the pressure difference.
