# Hydraulic

Hydraulics is the force or motion applied on a confined liquid. A incompresible fluid is used to applying presure at the smaller end, it will have the same pressure applied to the other end which is large in diameter.

## Flow Area

Flow area refers to the cross section area of the flow within the channel.

## Hydraulic Conductivity

Hydraulic conductivity, abbreviated as k, is the ease with which a fluid can move through porous spaces or fractures. See the Darcy's Law.

## Wetted Perimeter

Wetting perimeter is the portion of the channel that is in contact with the fluid flowing.
