Fluid Intake Cavities in Stratified Porous Media

Antony P.S. Selvadurai

Hvorslev's procedure for the estimation of the of the in-situ hydraulic conductivity characteristics of an isotropic porous medium involves the use of information concerning the rate of groundwater flow into either a cavity formed at the base of a cased borehole or a cylindrical piezometer tip. The objective of this article is to present a concise and complete development of the intake shape factor for a cavity region with either a prolate or an oblate form, located in a stratified porous medium, which has transversely isotropic hydraulic conductivity characteristics. The article presents the relevant mathematical relationships and discusses some aspects of the extension of the technique for the estimation of hydraulic conductivity of stratified porous media that are hydraulically transversely isotropic.
