  • Miller, Raymond J.; Overman, Allen R.; Peverly, John H. (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Water Resources Center, 1968-06)
    The flow of water through saturated samples of montmorillonite and kaolinite was studied to help clarify the existence and nature of non-Darcian flow. No threshold gradients were found in any of the samples studied. Non-Darcy ...
