Returns the pressure drop associated with a damper that has opposed vanes given the fluid, its flow rate and state, the upstream area, and the vane angle.  This function calls the K_damper_opposed function from the minor loss library.


DELTAP = DuctDamperOpposed_CL(F$, m_dot, T, P, A, theta)



F$:  fluid string identifier

m_dot:  mass flow rate (kg/s, lbm/hr)

T:  inlet temperature (K, C, F, or R)

P:  inlet pressure (bar, atm, Pa, kPa, or MPa)

A:  upstream duct area (m^2 or ft^2)

theta:  vane angle (radian or degree)



DELTAP:  pressure drop (bar, atm, Pa kPa, or MPa)
