New York, NY: Elsevier. xvii, 764 p. (1972).
Publisher’s description: Comprehensive classic text presents the theory of dynamics of fluids in porous media, and its interdisciplinary applications. Detailed topics include: fluids and porous matrix properties; continuum approach to porous media; pressure and piezometric head; fundamental fluid transport equations in porous media; equation of motion of a homogeneous fluid; continuity and conservation equations for a homogeneous fluid; solving boundary and initial value problems; unconfined flow and Dupuit approximation; flow of immiscible fluids; hydrodynamic dispersions; models and analogs.
