Permeable Wall Effects on Poiseuille Flow
The effects of permeable walls on Poiseuille flow are investigated. Due to the transfer of forward momentum across the permeable interface, a very thin boundary layer region is induced...

Diffusion Analogy for Some Stress Computations
Although soil is an assemblage of discrete particles of varying sizes, shapes, and mineral composition, the classical basis for the computation of stresses in soil mechanics is the Boussinesq...

Predicting Sand Deposition at Porous Fences
For porous fences of limited height and infinite length, measurements of boundary shear stress are reported in air flow normal to the fence plane. On the assumption that boundary shear...

Boundary Solutions to Two Problems in Porous Media
The boundary integral equation method (BIEM) is used to solve free surface ground-water problems. The formulation includes those problems in which the domain of the solution is infinite....

Unsaturated Flow Beneath Tailings Impoundments
Using technology developed for flow through porous media for applications in other disciplines, equations were developed to permit computation of seepage rates from tailings impoundments....

Thermodynamics of Solidifying or Melting Viscoelastic Material
Investigated are thermodynamic restrictions on rate-type creep laws for porous materials which slowly solidify while carrying load (aging of concrete, i.e., gradual filling of pores in...

Prediction of Non-Darcy Flow in Porous Media
Equations were derived that facilitate prediction of both the onset of non-Darcy flow in a porous medium, and the viscous and inertia force fractions of the hydraulic gradient, dp/ds,...

Virtual Mass of Coarse Granular Media
An experimental study to determine the effect of unsteady flow on the hydraulic conductivity of coarse granular porous media is outlined. The acceleration effect was expressed in terms...

Finite Element Schemes for Porous Elastic Media
In soil mechanics, consolidation theories are capable of describing the physical process under certain assumptions. Unfortunately, they fail to calculate analytically, e.g., the initial...

Transient Flow in Unsaturated Porous Media
Transient water movement in both horizontal and vertical unsaturated porous media is investigated. The nonlinear partial differential equation governing the one-dimensional flow is solved...

Air-Water Flow in Coarse Granular Media
Air may be entrained in the flow in porous shore structure under wave action. Three conceptual models for two-phase flow in ducts have been adapted to describe flow in coarse granular...
