Abstract: In this paper we examine the importance of fluid friction and nonlinearities due to the area-pressure relationship and to the convective acceleration on the separation of arterial pressure and flow waves into their forward and backward components. Experiments were run in straight uniform nonlinearly elastic tubes. Different degrees of fluid friction and nonlinearities, covering the physiological range, have been tested. We predicted the forward and backward running pressure components using two wave separation…
