Darcy Velocity

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Fluid Dynamics

darcy velocity 1Darcy velocity, abbreviated as v, also called Darcy flux, is the volumetric flow per unit area of a porous mediun.

 

Formulas that use Darcy Velocity or Flux

\(\large{ v =  k \; i   }\)   

Where:

\(\large{ v }\) = Darcy velocity or flux

\(\large{ k }\) = hydraulic conductivity

\(\large{ i }\) = hydraulic gradient
