constant rate

1. n. [Well Testing]
A flow rate that does not change appreciably during a test period. Flow rates are never truly constant, but changes of only a few percent do not affect the results of well-test analysis appreciably if the rate is averaged over the flow period.
Antonyms: variable rate
