Miscellaneous Calculations Application
In this application you have the following options:
- Well functions for leaky and non-leaky aquifers. You may calculate drawdowns as a function of distance from a pumped well, time of pumping, hydrogeological characteristics of the aquifer, namely transmissivity and storage coefficients, characteristics of the semiconfining layer if the aquifer is a leaky one, and the pumping rate.
- Empirical formulas by various authors for calculating the hydraulic conductivity on the basis of effective grain sizes (Hazen, U.S.B.R., Kozeny, Terzaghy, Slichter) or the total curve (Zamarin).
- Design of a well considering its diameter, screen characteristics, length of screen, entrance velocity to screen, and the pumping rate. With all but one of these parameters known, the program calculates the remaining unknown parameter. The program also suggests a casing diameter for a corresponding pumping rate if a vertical turbine pump is to be used.
