The author points out that the equation which appears to define flow through granular media is essentially identical to the equation for flow through pipes, but the expression is not useful to determine resistance to flow through granular media unless some of the variables are modified. The author discusses these variables and sets up formulas to determine the resistance to flow through granular media. He gives experimental results which show close agreement between calculated and observed values.
