Darcy's law is described, and some discussion of permeability is
given, for various rock or soil types. Dam seepage is studied via the
Dupuit approximation, and there is some discussion of the resulting
nonlinear diffusion equation. Next, the discussion is broadened to
include consolidation, including a little about hysteresis in the
compression curves, and then solute dispersivity and heterogeneous
porous media are treated. Piping is discussed in the notes, and dual
porosity models form the basis of one of the exercises.
