Description

These functions are used to calculate flow rate to wells (wellFlow), drawdown to wells (wellDrawdown), and hydraulic conductivity from pumping tests (kPump).

wellFlow(k, H = NA, h0, hf, r0, rw)
wellDrawdown(Q, k, H = NA, h0, r0, rw, r)
kPump(Q, H = NA, h1, h2, r1, r2)

Arguments

Q

flow rate into well

k

hydraulic conductivity of aquifer

H

thickness of aquifer

h0

initial total head in aquifer (before pumping)

hf

final total head in well casing (after pumping)

r0

radius of influence

rw

radius of well

r

radius of interest (for drawdown calculations)

h1

total head in farthest observation well (kPump

h2

total head in nearest observation well (kPump)

r1

radius from pumped well to farthest observation well (kPump)

r2

radius from pumped well to nearest observation well (kPump)

##  Example code for Flow rate to well
wellFlow(k = 0.065, H = 10, h0 = 21, hf = 15, r0 = 20, rw = 2)

##  Example code for Well Drawdown
wellDrawdown(Q = 14.5, k = 0.065, H = 10, h0 = 21, r0 = 20, r = 2,
             rw = 2)

##  Example code for Hydraulic Conductivity from pumping tests
kPump(Q = 14.5, H = 10, h1 = 20, h2 = 16, r1 = 16, r2 = 8)
