|ICS Code (Hydraulic construction):||93.160|
This test method covers an analytical procedure for determining transmissivity and storage coefficient of a non-leaky confined aquifer under conditions of radial flow to a fully penetrating well of constant flux. This test method is a shortcut procedure used to apply the Theis nonequilibrium method. The Theis method is described in Test Method D 4106.
This test method is used in conjunction with the field procedure given in Test Method D 4050.
Limitations - The limitations of this test method are primarily related to the correspondence between the field situation and the simplifying assumptions of this test method (see 5.1). Furthermore, application is valid only for values of u less than 0.01 (u is defined in Eq 2, in 8.6).
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard.
