Abstract

Some rigorous mathematical results for the Buckingham-Darcy flux law for water flow through an isotropic, nondeformable, inhomogeneous porous medium are presented. It is shown that the volumetric flux density vector, aside from the component due to gravity, may always be expressed in terms of a scalar and a vector matric flux potential.
