Standard Test Method for Determining Transmissivity of Nonleaky Confined Aquifers by the Theis Recovery Method
|Publication Date:||10 October 1996|
|ICS Code (Hydraulic construction):||93.160|
This test method covers an analytical procedure for determining the transmissivity of a confined aquifer. This test method is used to analyze data from the recovery of water levels following pumping or injection of water to or from a control well at a constant rate.
The analytical procedure given in this test method is used in conjunction with the field procedure in Test Method D 4050.
Limitations - The valid use of the Theis recovery method is limited to determination of transmissivities for aquifers in hydrogeologic settings with reasonable correspondence to the assumptions of the Theis theory (see 5.1).
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
