A dispersed particulate fluid system is continuous in each phase but discontinuous throughout the system. If the length scale of the dispersed phase is below the scale of the measuring device, then local measurement, can be established. This paper describes such a continuum and its use in analyzing the permeability funciton, Darcy's law, and a filtrate rate equation. (A)
