hydrostatic pressure
Hello everyone!I am a freshman in ƣ and I am doing multiphase flow with water and air.Now I have a confusing problem about the pressure.

In v monmentum equation,if we only consider invisid flow,the equation will be


if we consider u v are both equal to zero,then the equation becomes


for my case,I give initial guess as hydrostatic pressure -rou*g*y

So after derivative,it becomes -rou*g-d(rou)/dy*y

Therefore anyway there is something left!

I am using roe scheme and coupled solver.What I should do to give right correction or some other suggestions?

Thanks for any suggestions!
