Stagnation Point

What is a stagnation point in fluid dynamics? A point in the flow, where the velocity of fluid is zero, is called a stagnation point. Stagnation points exist at the surface of objects in the flow field, where the fluid is brought to rest by the object. The Bernoulli equation shows that the static pressure is highest when the velocity is zero and hence static pressure is at its maximum value at stagnation points. This static pressure is called the stagnation pressure.
