Response of a Basal Water-Body to Forced Draft

Measurement and Analysis of Hydraulic Conductivity Variability of a Heterogeneous Aquifer
The spatial variability of hydraulic conductivity of a shallow alluvial aquifer was investigated using borehole flowmeter measurements. The study was conducted at the site of a large-scale...

Type Curves for a Slug Test in an Infinitely or Semi-infinitely Thick Aquifer
Type curves are provided for a slug test in an infinitely or semi-infinitely thick aquifer, the latter with the single confining layer immediately above or immediately below the well....

Aquifer Measurements at Different Scales
Multilevel slug test data from five wells in a confined, sandy aquifer were analyzed to obtain an estimate of the vertical variation of the horizontal hydraulic conductivity, K(z). Hydraulic...

Application of Tracer Tests in Groundwater Remediation Design
Recent advances in the area of field testing for the quantification of hydraulic conductivity have resulted in improved site characterization of aquifer hydraulics and greater reliability...

Terrain Conductivity to Define Groundwater Pollution
Electromagnetic terrain conductivity surveys were conducted at four animal waste lagoon sites in South Carolina in an effort to delineate groundwater contamination from animal waste lagoon...

Buoyant, Miscible Plume in Heterogeneous Aquifer
A three-dimensional, particle tracking scheme is used to compute the trajectory of and spread about the centroid of a mass slug added to steady flow through an infinite aquifer with an...

Construction and Robotics: Problems and Solutions
The role of robotics in construction, and the role played by construction engineers (CE's) is placed in perspective. Robot development, like machine manufacture, has always...
