This report is available as a pdf below


The series of manuals on techniques describes procedures for planning and executing specialized work in water-resources investigations. The material is grouped under major headings called books and further subdivided into sections and chapters; section C of Book 7 is on computer programs.

“Finite-difference model for aquifer simulation in two dimensions with results of numerical experiments” supersedes the report published in 1970 entitled, “A digital model for aquifer evaluation” by G. F. Pinder as Chapter C1 of Book 7. The new Chapter C1 represents a significant improvement in the computational capability to solve the flow equations and has greater flexibility in the hydrologic situations that can be simulated.
