filtration coefficient

fil·tra·tion co·ef·fi·cient

a measure of a membrane's permeability to water; specifically, the volume of fluid filtered in unit time through a unit area of membrane per unit pressure difference, taking into account both hydraulic and osmotic pressures.

Here, k is the parameter representing the filtration coefficient. The choice of the product for the terms uC is based on the rationale that the particle deposition rate is proportional to the amount of particles that are transferred in a certain discrete portion (of the laminate) within a certain time.
In (18), [alpha] is the filtration coefficient used by filter of process output signal.

Remodeling of the membrane wall in responses to tears is incorporated in the filtration coefficient and retain the normal balance in the micro- vascular mechanism in supplying tissues or the surrounding fluids with nutrients and clearing waste products.

Several forms of filtration coefficient as function of retained particle concentration for different capture mechanisms and the resultant analytical solutions have been reported in the literature [21, 31].
Latvian investigations of sand used for laying a frost blanket course concluded that the quality of local sand did not meet the requirements: a low filtration coefficient was determined, as well as a large amount of fines and pollution (Akimovs 2009).
