Most books and papers on well hydraulics are mostly or entirely aquifer hydraulics. The phrase, 'well hydraulics,' implies a study of the flow into and within a well proper. There has been an increasing awareness of these flows, though the original interest originated several decades ago. The flows into the well screen are usually non-uniform, and the well losses not always easily measured. This paper explains some of the little known aspects of flow in wells and some on-going research to quantify the losses into and in wells.
