Calculating 3D Pressure from 2D Pressure

  1. Apr 1, 2010 #1

    I have a 2D FEM pipe simulation (pipe in lateral cross-section). I am simulating a fluid flowing down the pipe described by Navier-Stokes equations. I specify the flow rate of the fluid entering the pipe (m/s) and fluidic properties; density and viscosity etc ... I solve the simulation to find the pressure along the pipe.

    I am interested to know what the pressure would be if the pipe were in 3D. Therefore, how can I convert the simulated 2D pressure into the corrosponding pressure should the pipe exist in 3D.
