This is the force exerted on the formation due to the fluid exiting the jets. Cleaning is by direct erosion
on the bottom and by cross flow under the bit. Excessive hydraulic impact is a major cause of formation
flushing, where permeable zones ahead of the bit can be swept clean of formation fluids.

SI units

Bit IF (newtons) = ρρρρ Q Vn

ρ = mud density (kg/m3
)

Q = flowrate (m3

/min)
Vn = nozzle velocity (m/sec)

Q = gpm
Vn = ft/sec
