Analysis of Pump Test Data for Partial Penetrating wells

Kono Iichiro
Abstract
The solutions of unsteady phreatic flow toward a partially penetrating well in an aquifer of finite thickness are described. Firstly the solution for a confined aquifer is shown. In this case,three methods of analyzing field data with partially penetrating well are given, that is, "Log-Log Method, Log-Log Distance Drawdown Method and Jacob's Method Ajusted for Partial Penetration". By using these methods the hydraulic conductivities and the specific storage of the aquifer may be determined. Secondly the solution for an,unconfined aquifer is shown. In this case, also two methods of analyzing field data with partially penetrating well are given. By using these methods, the anisotropic permeability and the storage coefficient (effective porosity) of the aquifer may be determined. Moreover in each case, the effects of partial penetration are discussed and the limits of adapting the Theis' and Jacob's methods are setted. From these analytic results, some cosiderations are added to determine the anisotropy of permeability and to evaluate the storage coefficient.
