Radial Flow

In the case of radial flow in an unconfined aquifer as shown in Figure 9.4.3, the results obtained for confined flow can be directly applied to unconfined flow because the governing equations are the same in terms of the discharge potential. From Equation 9.3(31), the governing equation for radial unconfined flow is

The governing equation in terms of the head 4 is
