Analytical equations and methods for aquifer test analysis
Unsteady-state flow equation:
Equation for quasi-steady-state flow period:
Methods of analysis and parameters being estimated
Q – initial rate of the pumping well (prior to the first rate step).
1) can only be applied prior to the first rate step in the pumping well;
2) all experimental points fall on a single straight line (excluding observations after the pumping well shut down).
