The symbols have the meanings that we used in class.
The permeability k is constant in
all cases.
Answer or derive the following:
a.
What type of conservation equation is this?
What are the assumptions involved?
This is a steadystate, microscopic conservation equation for a single phase fluid in one
dimensional radial coordinates.
The phase need not be slightly compressible.
b.
Write Eq. 1 for the special case of an incompressible fluid with constant viscosity.
For incompressible flow the density is constant.
Eq. 1 becomes
