How to set inlet BC to model capillary rise through porous media using Corey model?

      Hi

      I'm also trying to model the Capillary rise in porous media. I've merely used a 2D model and the Corey model along with Leverette J-Function. Is there any document available online that I can have a look at to understand how the Corey model is used along with Brooks-Corey, van-genuchten and Leverette J-functions defining capillary pressure. I'm a bit confused as to how the inlet condition should be set if I am to determine the rise of water in a porous structure, cause eventually the capillary pressure and the hydrostatic pressure of the liquid column has to be balanced when the maximum rise is reached. Would appreciate some thoughts on this. Thank you.
