Physics[edit]

  • Static electricity, a net charge of an object
  • Static spacetime, a spacetime having a global, non-vanishing, timelike Killing vector field which is irrotational
  • Statics, a branch of physics concerned with physical systems in equilibrium
    • Fluid statics, the branch of fluid mechanics that studies fluids at rest

Engineering[edit]

  • Static pressure, in aircraft instrumentation and fluid dynamics
    • Static port, a proprietary sensor used on aircraft to measure static pressure
  • White noise or static noise, a random signal with a flat power spectral density
    • Noise (radio), in radio reception
    • Noise (video), the random black-and-white image produced by televisions attempting to display a weak or incoherent signal

Computing[edit]

  • Static build, a compiled version of a program which has been statically linked against libraries
  • Static linking, where identifiers are associated with data or sections of code during linking not run-time
  • Static logic, digital logic which does not use a clock signal; See Dynamic logic
    • Static core, a CPU entirely implemented in static logic
  • Static library, or statically-linked library, a set of routines, external functions and variables which are resolved in a caller at compile-time
  • Static memory allocation, carried out at compile time rather than run time
  • Static method, a method of a class that does not need an explicit object reference
  • Static IP, an IP address
  • Static route, a network route specified by local configuration, rather than being automatically determined by protocols that automatically assign routes
  • Static random-access memory, a type of semiconductor memory which retains its contents as long as power is applied
  • Static type checking, where type checking is applied at compile-time, not run-time
  • Static variables may be constants, local function variables, or class variables depending on the context, variables that are common to all objects
  • Static web design, a web design which offers a layout that cannot adapt to viewer needs
