2. DERIVATION OF RICHARD’S EQUATION IN RECTANGULAR COORDINATES The general continuity equation is: q = a v where q is the flow rate, volume/time (L3/T) a is the cross-section area perpendicular to the flow, (L2) v is the flow velocity, length/time (L/T) Porous Media Flow

3. Flow in the x-direction Porous Media Flow

4. Flow in the y-direction Porous Media Flow

5. Flow in the z-direction Porous Media Flow

6. From Continuity of mass Where Q is the volumetric water content and t is time. Porous Media Flow

7. From Continuity of mass Porous Media Flow

8. By canceling out terms Porous Media Flow

9. Applying the Darcy Law to each velocity term: Porous Media Flow

11. FLOW THROUGH POROUS MEDIA In unsaturated soil the total potential can be estimated as the sum of the matric potential and the gravity potential: Since the gravity potential only acts in the vertical, or z-direction, the total potential, h, can be replaced by the matric potential, Y, in all terms except the one involving z: Porous Media Flow

12. FLOW THROUGH POROUS MEDIA Porous Media Flow

13. FLOW THROUGH POROUS MEDIA This equation is known as the Richard's Equation. When only the terms involving z on the left are used, this equation can be used to simulate the vertical infiltration of water into the soil profile. Porous Media Flow

14. FLOW THROUGH POROUS MEDIA For saturated flow h will be the total head, F and there can be no change in moisture content with time. Porous Media Flow

15. FLOW THROUGH POROUS MEDIA For a homogeneous, isotropic soil Kx = Ky = Kz = K Porous Media Flow

16. FLOW THROUGH POROUS MEDIA Since K is not 0, the term inside the bracket must be 0 Porous Media Flow

17. FLOW THROUGH POROUS MEDIA This is called the LaPlace Equation for Saturated Flow in a homogeneous soil. Porous Media Flow

18. Porous Media Transport of Chemicals • DIFFUSION: transport from points or higher concentration to points of lower concentration. • Molecular Diffusion is due to the random movement of molecules • Turbulent Diffusion is due to the random movement of the fluid carrier. Also called dispersion. Porous Media Flow

19. Molecular Diffusion • Many molecules move from High to Low • Few molecules move from Low to High • Result is decrease in high concentration and increase in low concentration High Concentration Low Concentration Porous Media Flow

42. Travel Time of a Chemical Through Porous Media • Continuity Equation: Q = AV • Q is the flow rate (Volume / Time) • A is the total media flow cross-section area. • V is the average flow velocity through the media. • Q is the water fraction by volume in the media. Porous Media Flow

43. Travel Time of a Chemical Through Porous Media Q=AV V=Q/A V A Porous Media Flow

44. Travel Time of a Chemical Through Porous Media Q=AaVa Va=Q/Aa Aa=AQ Va = V/Q Va Aa Porous Media Flow

45. Velocity Through Porous Media Flow Rate = 1 CMS Total Area = 2 M2 V=Q/A=1/2= 0.5MPS Q = 1/2 = 0.5 Open Area = 1 M2 Va=V/Q = 0.5/0.5 = 1 MPS Porous Media Flow

46. Travel Time of a Chemical Through Porous Media • Va is the actual flow velocity in the pores of the media. • Va = V / Q • Mw = CwQ = Mass of chemical in the flowing water • MT = Cw(Q+KdBd) = The total mass of chemical in the media. Porous Media Flow

47. Travel Time of a Chemical Through Porous Media • Z = the distance over which travel occurs • T = Travel time of the chemical over distance Z. • V = Z / T • Therefore T = Z / V • Actual Ta = Z / Va = ZQ / V Porous Media Flow

48. Travel Time of a Chemical Through Porous Media • When adsorption of the chemical occurs within the media, the travel time must account for this by: • Tr = Z ( Q + Kd Bd ) / V • V may be the infiltration rate Porous Media Flow
