Hydraulic Conductivity and Permeability as Tensors ) 1. Intuitive Thinking – Scalar: a quantity that has only a magnitude and no direction associated with it, e.g., hydraulic head, temperature, contaminant concentration – Vector: a quantity that has both a magnitude and a direction, e.g., hydraulic gradient and flow velocity – Tensor: a quantity whose intrinsic properties are invariant under coordinate transformations, e.g., K, k, thermal conductivity, diffusion and dispersion coefficients – Intrinsic properties: (i) length and (ii) orientation relative to some absolute coordinate system – Discussion restricted to Cartesian tensors 2. Formal Definition – Scalar—a zero-order tensor. The magnitude of a scalar h(>1, >2, >3, t) is not altered by the change of translation/rotation of coordinate system – Vector—a first-order tensor. Similarly, the length of a vector does not change with the transformation of coordinate system Let (x1, x2, x3) and (x1', x2', x3'..
