A barotropic, compressible fluid at rest is governed by the statics equation, where z is the height above an arbitrary datum, and g is the gravity acceleration constant (9.81 m/s 2; 32.2 ft/s 2). This equation describes the pressure profile of the atmosphere, for example. For an incompressible fluid, the statics equation simplifies to,

Fluid Dynamics. Ideal persona: Claude-Louis Navier. All things relating to fluid simulation. Fluent, CFX, turbulence models, interior or exterior flow, free surfaces. Worksheet 3.1 Fluid Dynamics Name: Relevant textbook sections covered: 12.6 1) Typical blood pressure in an aorta is 13,600 Pa and its speed is 0.12 m/s. Blood passes through an area of aorta that has been narrowed down by plaque to a cross-sectional area 1/5 of the normal aorta.
