Confined Aquifers

This section discusses groundwater flow in confined aquifers including one-dimensional horizontal flow, semi-confined flow, and radial flow. It also discusses radial flow in a semiconfined aquifer.

One-Dimensional Horizontal Flow

One-dimensional horizontal confined flow means that water is flowing through a confined aquifer in one direction only. Figure 9.3.1 shows an example of such a flow. Since qy = qz = 0, the governing Equation 9.2(14) reduces to d2< = dx2 =
