Fourier Series Representation
Fourier Series RepresentationThe Fourier series theorem, which was published in 1822, states "A periodic function, f(t) with a period T can be represented by the sum of a constant term, a fundamental of period T, and its harmonics." In general, a Fourier series can be used to expand any periodic function into an infinite sum of sines and cosines. This is an extremely useful way to break up an arbitrary periodic function into a set of simple terms.For the case of pulsatile flow, where u is axial velocity and P is pressure, the partial derivative of velocity u with respect to time is not zero…
