Are there any methods in Ansys CFX for treating the flow as weakly compressible? There are local sharp pressure drops near the leaflet at one point in the cycle but the flow overall is very much incompressible.nOne paper imposed a speed of sound of 15.7 m/s on the fluid (with the effective value being in the order of 1570 m/s) but I'm not sure how to do this in CFX. I'm using the immersed boundary method (like the paper) and assuming rigid leaflets. Also, blood is nearly always assumed to be incompressible so there aren't any equations of state that I could program in for density (that I could find). n
