Week 9: Flow net workshop and Non steady-state flow to a well: Theis solution for a confined aquifer
Upon completion of this unit students should be able to:
Read, interpret and construct a flow net
Make simple calculations using a flow net
Use non steady-state equations for flow in confined and unconfined aquifers to estimate hydraulic head at a known distance between two monitoring points.
List and discuss the assumptions that are associated with the Theis equation.
Use well function tables to interpolate using the Theis equation.
Flow net workshop: review flow net reading from last week: Fetter, pp. 132-137 and handout
Lecture 13: Non steady-state flow, Theis equation- Fetter, pp. 138-146
Homework Assignment: Flow net homework
I will pass out a flow net homework problem in class. If you miss class, e-mail me and I will get you a copy. I am not posting the assignment on the web page because of copyright issues.
