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, Then, analytical solutions of drawdown variations within an aquitard were derived […]
