Darcy’s Law Calculator

Posted by Dinesh on

The simple hydraulics and waterworks calculator to calculates dams on soft or porous foundations discharge value using Darcy’s Law.
Darcy’s law furnishes a theoretical basis for providing adequate length of water travel beneath a dam. This relation may be expressed as Q = C1 * (H * A) / L.


Q = C1 × (H × A) / L

  • H - head
  • L - length
  • C1 - a coefficient that depends on the character of the material
  • A - cross sectional area
  • Q - discharge
