Bounded aquifers.
Several
wells pumped at a variable rate
Test conditions
and boundary conditions are similar to that of confined bounded aquifer
and confined aquifer
with one lateral boundary.
Calculation of
distances from observation point to image wells for fully
penetrating wells is made in the same way as for fully penetrating
wells in confined aquifer (bounded or with one lateral boundary); for partially
penetrating wells – as for linear source in confined aquifers
(bounded or with one lateral
boundary).
As in the case
of unconfined aquifer of
infinite extent, anisotropy on the vertical plane is taken into
consideration
Whether aquifer
aquifer has lateral boundaries or not, pumping test analysis is
possible for any number of pumping wells, each of them being
produced at randomly varying rate.
