I Whammer method of characteristics

  1. Apr 22, 2016 #1
    Hey gus, I am trying to understand concept of Pabs and Pgate.

    When we solve during the class a fluid transient problem by method of characteristics we got even -50, -100 m' s of pressure heads at some points along a pipe and If Patm= 10 m. then how can we say pressure can not be negative? Because obviously it does. Please help enlighten me.
