An Analytical Method to Calculate Groundwater Released From an Aquitard Undergoing Nonlinear Consolidation

Abstract The estimation of groundwater released from aquitards is important for the groundwater resource management. In this study, a governing equation of drawdown variation within the aquitard, which undergoes nonlinear consolidation, was obtained based on the consolidation theory of Gibson et al. (1967, https://doi.org/10.1680/geot.1967.17.3.261). Then, analytical solutions of drawdown variations within an aquitard were derived […]
