Validity of Darcy's law under transient conditions

Professional Paper 1331



Darcy 's Law, which describes fluid flow through porous materials, was developed for steady flow conditions. The validity of applying this law to transient flows has been mathematically verified for most ground-water flow conditions. The verification was accomplished through application of Hankel transforms to linearized Navier-Stokes equations which described flow in a small diameter cylindrical tube. The tube was chosen to represent a single pore in a porous medium. (USGS)
