Abstract

The first paper presents theoretical expressions describing transient and steady state head response in monitoring intervals or arbitrary lengths and orientations, to constant-rate injection into (or withdrawal from) intervals having similar or different lengths and orientations. The conditions under which these intervals can be treated mathematically as points are investigated by an asymptotic analysis. The effect of planar no-flow and constant-head boundaries on the response is the theory of images. The second paper describes the field methodology and shows how the proposed approach works in the case of fractured granitic rocks.-from Authors
