hydraulic bannerHydraulics 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

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