NONLINEAR TECHNOLOGICAL FUNCTIONS FOR AQUIFERS WHOSE TRANSMISSIVITIES VARY WITH DRAWDOWN.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

AN ALGEBRAIC TECHNOLOGICAL FUNCTION (ATF) IS SHOWN TO EXIST FOR AN AQUIFER WHOSE FLOW TO WELLS CAN BE RE - MODELED BY BOUSSINESQ'S EQUATION.DRAWDOWN IS SHOWN TO BE AN INFINITE POWER SERIES IN PUMPING VALUES, AND THE ATF IS PROVIDED BY A FINITE SUM OF THE POWER SERIES.THE NUMBER OF TERMS NECESSARY FOR THE FINITE SUM TO PROVIDE A GOOD APPROXIMATION TO THE INFINITE SERIES IS SHOWN TO DEPEND ON A RATIO OF DRAWDOWN TO SATURATED THICKNESS.THE ATF CAN BE USED IN OPTIMIZATION TECHNIQUES OR AS A METHOD FOR PREDICTING DRAWDOWNS FROM PUMPING.(A).
