head(l) and not of pressure gradients (Harr 1962 and Bear 1972). As shown in
figure 2-1, flow is directed from point A to point B even though the pressure
at point B is greater than that at point A. Figure 2-1. Darcy's law for flow through inclined soil column
(prepared by WES) (1) The elevation head at any point is the distance from some arbitrary datum.
The pressure head is the water pressure divided by the unit weight of the
water. The total head is the sum of the elevation head and the pressure
