Principles of viscous flow analogy derived by Hele-Shaw in 1897 are well known, but solutions concerning scales for length (including distorted scales), time, discharge, volume, storage coefficient, two liquid flows, and capillary effects were missing; paper fills this gap and derives computations and equations, covering complete description of computations of scales for various cases.
