This lesson covers the concept of flow through porous media, focusing on mass continuity in Cartesian and cylindrical coordinates. It delves into pressure equations, velocities, stream functions, and potential functions. The lesson also discusses elementary flows such as source, sink, vortex, and unidirectional flow, and how to simulate complex situations using these elementary flows. It further explains how to calculate the volume flow per unit depth and the implications of superposing a source and a uniform flow. The lesson concludes with a discussion on resultant streamlines and velocity profiles in Cartesian and cylindrical systems.
