The image above represents dimensionless time.

To compute for the dimensionless time, six essential parameters are needed and these parameters are **permeability (k), porosity (φ), viscosity (μ), well radius (r _{w}), minimum transient time (t) and total compressibility (C_{T}).**

The formula for calculating dimensionless time:

t_{D} = ^{0.000263kt } / _{φμCTrw²}

Where;

t_{D} = Dimensionless Time

k = Permeability

φ = Porosity

μ = Viscosity

r_{w} = Well Radius

t = Minimum Transient Time

C_{T} = Total Compressibility

Let’s solve an example

Find the dimensionless time when the permeability is 13, porosity is 11.5, viscosity is 10.5, well radius is 24, minimum transient time is 17 with a total compressibility of 28.

This implies that;

k = Permeability = 13

φ = Porosity = 11.5

μ = Viscosity = 10.5

r_{w} = Well Radius = 24

t = Minimum Transient Time = 17

C_{T} = Total Compressibility = 28

t_{D} = ^{0.000263kt } / _{φμCTrw²}

tD = ^{0.000263 x 13 x 17}/ _{11.5 x 10.5 x 28 x 24²}

tD = ^{0.000263 x 13 x 17}/ _{11.5 x 10.5 x 28 x 576}

tD = ^{0.000263 x 13 x 17}/ _{1947456}

tD = ^{0.058123}/ _{1947456}

tD = 2.9845e-8

Therefore, the **dimensionless time **is **2.98**
