fluid pressure

n
(General Physics) the pressure exerted by a fluid at any point inside it. The difference of pressure between two levels is determined by the product of the difference of height, the density, and the acceleration of free fall

As an example, Figure 3 illustrates variations in the mean fluid pressure in the piston-side chamber normalized with respect to the initial pressure (1.
Secondly, as explained in [21], due to the strong coupling presented in the governing equations (31)--(39), linear interpolation of fluid pressure might yield wrong pressure values when high pressure gradient is observed, thus falsifying the overall displacement solution.
The test measure the fluid pressure inside the eye, which can detect signs of glaucoma - a disorder which can cause blindness if left untreated.
However, in acute glaucoma, the drainage system suddenly develops a blockage, and the fluid pressure inside the eye rises rapidly, causing pain and a "red eye".
Glaucoma is caused when fluid pressure builds up in the eye and damages the optic nerve.
These units combine both heating and cooling in a compact single unit and allow precise temperature control in the range -10[degrees]C to + 90[degrees]C and guarantee the end user constant fluid pressure.
A: Tails are caused by low fluid pressure and can be solved by increasing the pressure.
The device can also now be equipped with fluid pressure sensors for the first time and temperature measurements are possible for an extended measuring range from -250[degrees]C to 1200 [degrees]C.
On the other hand, the increase in mud density can easily control formation pore fluid pressure, therefore, wide range of safe pipe trip-out speeds can be applied as shown in Figure 2.
