Since tj is independent of angle 0, the last term of this equation can be dropped. The fundamental equation of radial flow is then

The solution of this differential equation with boundary conditions (Gupta 1989) yields

This equation is known as the Thiem equation.

To calculate the head at the well jw using Equation 9.3(12), substitute the radius of the well rw for r, which gives
