Describing the capillary pressure for the downstream meniscus, the capillary number is now a function of the shear rate (20):
Mason (26) corrected Brown's derivation by realizing that the capillary pressure and the elastic response do not act over the same areas to find:
Pressure ulcers result when increased pressure on the skin and subcutaneous tissues exceeds the local capillary pressure, which compromises blood flow and results in ischemia and decreased oxygen delivery [13].
GFR, SNGFR, glomerular capillary pressure (PGd, single nephron plasma flow (Qa), single nephron filtration fraction (SNFF), afferent (AR) and efferent (ER) resistances, afferent (7A) and efferent (7rE) oncotic pressure and ultrafiltration coefficient (Kf) were calculated.
The relative permeability of the different phases in the fracture is assumed as a linear function of saturation with no irreducible or residual saturation and the capillary pressure in the fracture is assumed to be zero.

Increased extravascular lung water occurs in association with pulmonary oedema from increased pulmonary capillary permeability (acute lung injury or acute respiratory distress syndrome) or from an increase in pulmonary capillary pressure (hydrostatic or cardiogenic pulmonary oedema).
Practitioners Pellerin and Zinszner begin by describing the various petrophysical properties of rocks and their relation with petrology, including the porosity and mineralogy of their solid phase and compressibility, and capillary pressure in case of perfect wettability.
The functional change in GFR results in a long-term anatomic advantage, because the reduced capillary pressure results in less injury to the glomerular structure, Dr.
Experiments with pre-soaked samples and those conducted under external capillary pressure showed different trends from non-pressurized post-soaked samples, indicating a possible switch in the rate-limiting steps for contaminant diffusion under these conditions.
