Unconfined Aquifer Well Design Calculator

Fluid Mechanics Hydraulics Hydrology

The following equation uses Darcy's equation with pumping occurring at the center of a cylinder. This equation can be utilized to determine the cone of depression and well drawdown in an unconfined aquifer.

Solving for pressure head at point 1.
