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

Pollyea explained that when wastewater is injected deep underground, fluid pressure builds up and migrates away from the injection wells, destabilizing faults and causing injection-induced earthquakes.
Hanon Systems (KS: 018880), a full-line supplier of automotive thermal and energy management solutions for electrified and conventional vehicles, has completed the acquisition of the Fluid Pressure & Controls business of Magna International Inc.
Spiders are known to use hydraulic fluid pressure to extend their legs but it was unknown what role that plays in jumping.
where [delta] is the equivalent aperture, J is the fluid pressure gradient, and [mu] is the viscosity of the fluid.
[8] conducted coupled reservoir-geomechanical simulations to evaluate the shear and tensile failure in order to accurately estimate the potential of fracture reactivation for a geomechanical C[O.sub.2] storage formation, and they suggested that long-lasting observation is needed to geomechanical changes resulting from the injected fluid pressure.

To obtain the interstitial fluid pressure and velocity in the tumor, blood flow pressure and velocity in the capillaries, a numerical scheme is proposed and the effects of different parameters such as necrotic radius, hydraulic conductivity and intercapillary distance (the distance between two capillaries) are investigated.
According to a new study published in the British Journal of Ophthalmology, glaucoma causes fluid pressure to build up inside the eye (intraocular pressure), damaging the optic nerve.
Glaucoma causes fluid pressure to build up inside the eye, damaging the optic nerve.
Glaucoma causes fluid pressure to build up inside the eye (intraocular pressure), damaging the optic nerve, which is one of the leading causes of blindness worldwide.
This lowers the fluid pressure inside the eye and helps prevent further damage of the optic nerve from glaucoma.
In the first series, the strut was subjected to a 50 mm amplitude harmonic excitation to examine the effect of entrapped gas on the mean fluid pressure. The experiment was conducted for nearly 1 hour until the mean pressure approached a steady value.
The peak values of accelerated fluid pressure onto wall are located at the bottom of the container wall and presented in Figure 13 as functions of the tank slenderness parameter [gamma].
