Aquifer of infinite lateral extent

Aquifer of infinite lateral extent

 

Assumptions:

üaquifer is unconfined, of infinite lateral extent, isotropic or anisotropic on the vertical plane;

üpumping well may be fully penetrating or partially penetrating;

üdrawdown can be estimated in the observation well (fully penetrating or partially penetrating) or in the piezometer at any distance from the pumping well;

üallowance for storage capacity of the pumping well, skin effect and storage capacity of the observation well (see Moench’s solution accounting for pumping well storage capacity) is made.

 

a        b

c        d

e        f

Conceptual hydrogeological schemes (cross-sections) of unconfined anisotropic aquifer of infinite lateral extent.

a – partially penetrating pumping well and piezometer; b – partially penetrating pumping and observation wells; c – fully penetrating pumping well and piezometer; d – fully penetrating pumping and observation wells; e – fully penetrating pumping and observation wells in the unconfined leaky aquifer; f – confined-unconfined aquifer.

 

Fundamental equations:

1) Neuman’s solution for average drawdown in observation well and drawdown in piezometer in anisotropic aquifer; pumping well as well as penetrating well may be fully penetrating or partially penetrating;

2) Boulton’s solutions for average drawdown and water table drawdown in fully penetrating well in isotropic aquifer;

3) Moench’s solution for average drawdown in observation well and drawdown in piezometer in anisotropic aquifer; pumping and observation wells being fully penetrating or partially penetrating;

4) Moench’s solution for average drawdown in observation well and drawdown in piezometer in anisotropic aquifer; pumping and penetrating wells being fully penetrating or partially penetrating; allowance is made for pumping well and piezometer storage capacity, skin effect in the pumping well and shape factor of the piezometer;

5) Moench’s solution for drawdown in fully penetrating or partially penetrating pumping well in anisotropic aquifer with account for pumping well storage capacity and skin effect;

6) Theis’s solution for water table drawdown for fully penetrating well in isotropic aquifer;

7) Hantush’s solution for water table drawdown for fully penetrating well in isotropic leaky aquifer;

8) MoenchPrickett solution for confined-unconfined aquifer.

 

To be analyzed are:

One well pumped at a constant rate

Pumping

Recovery

One or several wells pumped at a variable rate

Pumping

 

If Moench’s solution is applied some additional parameters should be specified such as: casing radius of the pumping well, skin hydraulic conductivity, skin thickness and, if needed, shape factor of the observation well or piezometer.
