Abstract The porous medium model of Green and Ampt, describing flow in porous media, appeared earlier than the capillary model of Washburn, although both lead to mathematically identical models. Here, the model of Green and Ampt was related to the Washburn model by an examination of the parameters involved in each. Fries et al. [N. Fries, M. Dreyer, J. Colloid Interface Sci. 320 (2008) 259-263] presented an explicit solution to this model. This solution is identical to the explicit solution of the Green and Ampt model presented earlier by Barry et al. [D.A. Barry, J.-Y. Parlange, G.C. Sander, M. Sivaplan, J. Hydrol. 142 (1993) 29-46].
