Hydraulic conductivity, symbolically represented as K, is a property of vascular plants, soils and rocks, that describes the ease with which a fluid (usually water) can move through pore spaces or fractures.

Where

  • `Q` is the total quantity of water for constant head
  • `i` is the hydraulic gradient
  • `A` is the cross section area (perpendicular to flow)
  • `t_E` elapsed time during falling head
