## Input(s)

\(\mathrm{D}_{\mathrm{h}}\): Diameter of Bit or Hole Size (Plus Washout) (in.)

Ø: Porosity (fraction)

## Output(s)

\(\mathrm{V}_{\mathrm{c}}\): Amount of Cuttings Produced per each Foot of Hole Drilled (bbls)

## Formula(s)

\[
\mathrm{V}_{\mathrm{c}}=\frac{\mathrm{D}_{\mathrm{h}}^{2}}{1029.4} *(1-\varnothing)
\]
