An evaluation of a discretized method of analysis for low-velocity two and three-dimensional transient fluid-flow problems is presented. The method assumes the continuum can be represented by a latticework of flow elements and that the physical response in the continuum can be determined by solving the one-dimensional transient flow equations in the line elements. The approach is explained, and validated by presenting comparisons between numerical and analytical hydrodynamic solutions.
