6 Governing Equation - Solution The Laplace’s equation is a homogeneous, partial second order differential equation • Solution: Exact solutions: only for simple geometries Graphical solutions: Flow nets, master charts Numerical solutions: finite difference and finite elements solutions Approximate solutions: methods of fragments Physical analogies (electrical, hydraulic and heat flow) Geo-electric Layering Often the earth can be simplified within the region of our measurement as

Longitudinal conductance (one layer): S L =h/ ρ =h σ Transverse resistance (one layer): T=h ρ Longitudinal resistivity (one layer): ρ L =h/S Transverse resistivity (one layer): ρ T =T/h Longitudinal conductance (one layer): S L = Σ( h i / ρ i ) Transverse resistance (one layer): T= Σ (h i ρ i )...

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
