Don't confuse it with Absolute Pressure, which is the static pressure + relative pressure. Also, if you fluid is incompressible, any pressure is possible. If fluid properties are not dependant on pressure, then all pressures are relative (i.e. if you add the same pressure, say Poffset, to all your boundary conditions, the solution is the same, but the pressure is offest). In reality you don't have negative pressures because density changes with pressure in a gas and liquids boil/cavitate when the pressure is low enough. If you include this behavior in your model, you won't see negative pressures. -CycLone
