CE 6240 - Ground-Water Hydrology


Topics include Darcy’s Law, fluid potential, hydraulic conductivity, heterogeneity and anisotropy, the unsaturated zone, compressibility, transmissivity and storativity, the 3-D equation of ground-water flow, steady-state and transient regional ground-water flow, and well hydraulics, including discussions involving Theis’ Inverse Method, Jacob’s Method, slug test analyses, and the principle of superposition. Students solve transient, one-dimensional and steady-state, two-dimensional ground-water flow problems by solving the governing partial differential equations by the finite-difference technique. Also includes numerical solution of tridiagonal systems of linear equations, truncation errors, and stability analysis. Requires writing computer programs using Fortran, C++, or an equivalent. Prerequisite: CS 101, CE 315, CE 336, or equivalent.
