Unformatted text preview: for unconfined and confined aquifers • Solve the groundwater flow equation for simple boundary value problems • Use the principle of superposition to decompose and solve more complicated groundwater flow problems • Write down the 2D flow equation in cylindrical coordinates for flow to a pumping well • Solve the steady flow equation toward a pumping well for unconfined/confined aquifers • Use these solutions to for solve for aquifer properties (conductivity/transmissivity) • Solve the transient flow equation toward a pumping well using the well function • Use superposition to solve for head in problems with multiple wells, impermeable lateral boundaries, stream boundaries, etc....
