1 Solutions to Wave Equation • Use an arbitrary function f(z) • Pressure-Velocity Coupling • Waves on top of a steady flow? • Only for inviscid flow? What about boundary layers? Take Home Message Wave Speed Pressure-Velocity Coupling p o = ρ c u o Steady + wave flow

2 Applications of Pressure-Velocity Waves • Hypertension – hardening and narrowing of arterial space – Initial contraction – Chronic wall hypertrophy Hypertensive Stress only in arterial side of vessel network Atherosclerosis (“sclerosis”: to harden) • Narrowing of Central Artery Lumen – Deposition of fat – Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) invade fat deposits and calcify tissue (harden) – Proliferation of SMCs – Fractures • Occurs at bifurcations and disturbed flow
