Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


In numerical simulation of real-world flow problems, we often encounter some issues concerning artificial boundary conditions. An important example is the blood flow problem in the large arteries and the simulation is highly dependent on the choice of artificial boundary conditions posed on the outflow boundary. In the present paper, we examine some outflow boundary conditions including our new condition from the view-point of mathematical analysis.
