Introduction

Summaries of type-curve solutions for confined ground

Solution 1: Constant discharge from a fully penetrating well in a nonleaky aquifer (Theis equation)

Solution 2: Constant discharge from a partially penetrating well in a nonleaky aquifer

Solution 3: Constant drawdown in a well in a nonleaky aquifer

Solution 4: Constant discharge from a fully penetrating well in a leaky aquifer

Solution 5: Constant discharge from a well in a leaky aquifer with storage of water in the confining beds

Solution 6: Constant discharge from a partially penetrating well in a leaky aquifer

Solution 7: Constant drawdown in a well in a leaky aquifer

Solution 8: Constant discharge from a fully penetrating well of finite diameter in a nonleaky aquifer

Solution 9: Slug test for a finite diameter well in a nonleaky aquifer

Solution 10: Constant discharge from a fully penetrating well in an aquifer that is anisotropic in the horizontal plane

Solution 11: Variable discharge from a fully penetrating well in a leaky aquifer
