How to Calculate and Solve for Entrance Velocity | Darcy’s Law | Water Budget

The image above represents entrance velocity.

To compute for entrance velocity, one essential parameters are needed and these parameters are Hydraulic Conductivity (ki).

The formula for calculating entrance velocity:

Ve = ki


Ve = Entrance Velocity
ki = Hydraulic Conductivity

Let’s solve an example;
Find the entrance velocity when the hydraulic conductivity is 8.\

This implies that;

ki = Hydraulic Conductivity = 8

Ve = ki
Ve = 8

Therefore, the entrance velocity is 8.
