Tubarc

Definition

Tubarc rate
(Noun) Tubarc = Tube + Arc
It is a geometric structure to replace capillarity allowing continuous lateral flow of an organized porosity as a cylindrical structure for unsaturated hydraulic flow (US pat. 6,766,817). Laypeople not in Hydrology has employed wick or wicking disregarding long standing knowledge in Soil Physics when in 1907 Edgard Buckingham proposed a modification of Darcy's Law created in 1856 to address fluid flow through unsaturated soil over the water table in the soil porosity. The hydrology of oil lamps upward is too restrictive to address fluids moving on porosity and also has compliances to thermodynamics. Wick or wicking is not a technical expression in hydrology books since thermodynamics has no concern on hydrological functioning.
Usage: Tubarc is a new conception in hydrodynamics to correct multidirectional unsaturated flow impossible to capillarity associated to restriction of the tube theory providing spatial quantification of fluid movement between hydrological zones.
