Pumping well intersects a vertical fracture
confined, isotropic, of infinite lateral extent;
üfracture of a
limited length has a height equal to aquifer thickness;
üpumping well of
full penetration is in the center of the fracture;
is of full penetration either;
üflow towards the
fracture is pseudoradial or linear (normal to fracture);
of the fracture is not taken into account.
Well intersecting a vertical fracture. The figure above shows the
cross-section, the figure below
– 3D and plan view.
Pseudoradial flow towards fracture (left) and linear flow towards
horizontal distance from the observation well the fracture
specified in the "Boundary" column of the "Well"
flow towards fracture
2. Linear flow
parameters: transmissivity (T)
and hydraulic diffusivity (a)
of confined aquifer. The fracture length (Lf)
is a supplementary parameter to be specified.
