The present paper concerns flow through assemblage of non-homogeneous porous cylindrical particles using cell model technique. All four cell model formulations used on hypothetical surface (Happel, Kuwabara, Kvashnin and Mehta-Morse/Cunningham.) and a comparison has been made among them for non-homogeneous porous region. Previously established results have been deduced as special case of our model. Effect of various parameters on hydrodynamic permeability of membrane has been graphically analyzed.
