In addition to compressibility and viscous heating, the pressure dependence of the viscosity was modeled using Macedo's approach [43] where the reference temperature [T.
Our results indicate that the extended model with compressibility varies from the previous model assuming incompressible tissue.

20] reported that USG compressibility of spastic muscles may be used as an indicator of decreased muscle elasticity in chronic stroke survivors.
Some brake engineers believe that the hardness of the pad is related to brake squeal occurrence; the higher the pad hardness, the higher the brake squeal occurrence, that lower pad compressibility (harder pads) leads to higher brake squeal occurrences, or that high coefficient of friction leads to brake squeal.
Secondly, the isentropic compressibility is increasing as it can be seen by the increasing distance between each isobar at temperatures higher than the critical one.

It is well known that the probability density function of FTLEs of smooth statistically isotropic Kraichnan flows evolves according to the convective-diffusive equation with constant coefficients; the values of these constants can be expressed in terms of the dimensionality and compressibility of the flow [1,14].
