Ground Water Flow

The three dimensional ground water flow equation is given by

Ground Water Flow Equation

where qx is the Darcy flux, h is the hydraulic head, Kx is the hydraulic conductivity in the x direction, and Ss is the storage coefficient for a confined aquifer. The Darcy flux is defined by

Various forms of Darcy's Law

where qx is the Darcy flux in the x direction and i is the hydraulic gradient.

Calculator icon Three calculators address components of Darcy's law: The subsequent pages show examples for the use of these calculators.
