1 Student’s Name: GEOL 4320/5328 Hydrogeology Fall 2009 Homework Problem Set #3 (15 points) (Due: Sep. 30, 2009 ) 1. (3 points) The hydraulic conductivity of medium-sized sand was measured as 11.2 m/day in a laboratory test with water at 25°C. (A) What is the intrinsic permeability of the sample in square micrometers? (B) What is the expected in-situ hydraulic conductivity if the natural groundwater temperature is 10°C? 2. (3 points) A constant-head permeameter has a cross-sectional area of 127 cm 2 . The aquifer sample is 34 cm long. At a head of 15 cm, the permeameter discharges 50 cm 3 in 334 s. (A) What is the hydraulic conductivity in centimeters per second and feet per day? (B) What is the intrinsic permeability if the hydraulic conductivity was measured at

Unformatted text preview: 20 C? 2 3. (3 points) The stratification of an aquifer is shown below. Calculate the equivalent horizontal and vertical hydraulic conductivities. What is the degree of anisotropy? 4. (6 points) Using the tabulated results of a grain size distribution test on a field sample, perform the following tasks: (A) Plot a grain size distribution curve for this sample (hint: you need to get the grain size for each sieve number from the lecture note) (B) Is this a well-sorted or poorly-sorted sample? (poorly-sorted materials have a uniformity coefficient > 6) U.S. Standard Sieve Number Mass retained (g) 3/8 49.95 4 26.70 8 25.29 16 50.58 30 72.57 40 25.50 100 33.60 200 7.53 Pan (passes through #200 sieve) 8.28...
