Linearized, unsteady seepage solutions are obtained for some flows which result when groundwater percolates vertically downward to the water table. Solutions are given for the case when the recharge water is spread uniformly over both a two-dimensional strip of finite width and a circular region of finite radius. Finally, the mathematical solution is compared with experimental results and with a solution obtained from the Dupuit theory.
