A NEW TECHNIQUE FOR TIME-VARIANT GROUND WATER FLOW ANALYSIS

THIS PAPER DESCRIBES SOME DEVELOPMENTS MADE TO THE STRELTSOVA NUMERICAL METHOD FOR SIMULATING THE TIME-VARIANT FALL OF THE WATER TABLE WHICH MAKE IT APPLICABLE TO BOTH FULLY AND PARTIALLY PENETRATING ABSTRACTION SYSTEMS. USING NUMERICAL TECHNIQUES THE SIMULATION EQUATIONS FOR THE FALL OF THE WATER TABLE ARE DERIVED AND A COMPUTER PROGRAM BASED ON THE GAUSS-SEIDEL (SUCCESSIVE OVER-RELAXATION) ITERATION PROCEDURE IS WRITTEN. THIS FORTRAN IV PROGRAM WAS THEN USED TO SOLVE TWO COMPLEX GROUNDWATER PROBLEMS OBTAINING RESULTS THAT WERE IN GOOD AGREEMENT WITH THOSE OBTAINED USING ELECTRICAL ANALOGUE TECHNIQUES. BESIDES BEING MORE FLEXIBLE, THIS PROGRAM IS MUCH MORE ECONOMICAL THAN PREVIOUS METHODS IN TERMS OF COMPUTER TIME AND STORAGE AND THEREFORE PROVIDES A POWERFUL TOOL FOR THE ANALYSIS AND DESIGN OF GROUNDWATER LOWERING SYSTEMS.
