Hello ,
I was wondering when it is allowed to prescribe a perssure BC at the inlet in a (cardiovascular) CFD problem. I am making a model of a couple of vessels, and want to have it pressure-driven. However, someone said that it is not always physically correct due to the energy balance not always being fulfilled or something. However, I know that it can be correct but I want to know what needs to be met / when is it OK to prescribe pressure at inlet, does anyone have some scientific references?

boundary conditions, energy balance, inlet, pressure driven flow
