Presented by: Lauren Cameron

**What is a Single Well Test?**

A single-well test is a test in which no piezometers are used Water-level changes are measured in the well Influenced by well losses and bore-storage Must be considered Decreases with time and is negligible at t > 25r,2/KD To determine if early-time drawdown data are dominated by well- bore storage: Plot log-log of drawdown s vs. pumping time Early time drawdown = unit–slope straight line = SIGNIFICANT bore storage effect Recovery test is important to do!

**Constant Discharge Methods**

Confined aquifers Papadopulous-Cooper Method Rushton-Singh’s ratio method Confined and Leaky aquifers Jacob’s Straight-Line method Hurr-Worthington’s method Constant Discharge Methods

7
**Papadopulos-Cooper’s Method 1: assumptions**

Curve Fitting Method Constant Discharge Fully Penetrating Well Confined Aquifer Takes Storage capacity of well into account Assumptions: Chapter 3 assumptions, Except that storage cannot be neglected Added: Flow to the well is in UNSTEADY state Skin effects are negligible Papadopulos-Cooper’s Method 1: assumptions

8
**Papadopulos-Cooper’s Method 2: The Equation**

This method uses the following equation to generate a family of type curves: Papadopulos-Cooper’s Method 2: The Equation

9
**Papadopulos-Cooper’s Method 3: remarks**

The early-time = water comes from inside well Points on data curve that coincide with early time part of type curve, do not adequately represent aquifer If the skin factor or linear well loss coefficient is known S CAN be calculated via equations or 15.3 S is questionable Papadopulos-Cooper’s Method 3: remarks

10
**Rushton-Singh’s ratio Method 1: Assumpions/uses**

Confined aquifers Papadopulos-Cooper type curves = similar Difficult to match data to (enter Rushton-Sing’s Ratio method) More sensitive curve-fitting method Changes in well drawdown with time are examined (ratio) Assumptions Papadopulos-Cooper’s Method Rushton-Singh’s ratio Method 1: Assumpions/uses

11
**Rushton-Singh’s ratio Method 2: Equation**

The following ratio is used: Rushton-Singh’s ratio Method 2: Equation

12
**Rushton-Singh’s ratio Method 3: Remarks**

Values of ratio are between 2.5 and 1.0 Upper value = beginning of (constant discharge) test Type curves are derived from numerical model Annex 15.2 Rushton-Singh’s ratio Method 3: Remarks

13
**Jacob’s Straight Line Method 1: Uses/Assumptions**

Confined AND Leaky aquifers Can also be used to estimate aquifer transmissivity. Single well tests Not all assumptions are met so additional assumptions are added Jacob’s Straight Line Method 1: Uses/Assumptions

14
**Jacob’s Straight Line Method 2: Remarks**

Drawdown in well reacts strongly to even minor variations in discharge rate CONSTANT DISCHARGE No need to correct observed drawdowns for well losses In theory: Works for partially penetrating well (LATE TIME DATA ONLY!) Use the “1 ½ log cycle rule of thumb” to determine is well-bore storage can be neglected Jacob’s Straight Line Method 2: Remarks

15
**Hurr-Worthington’s Method 1: assumptions/Uses**

Confined and Leaky Aquifers Unsteady-State flow Small-Diameter well Chapter 3 assumptions Except Aquifer is confined or leakey Storage in the well cannot be neglected Added conditions Flow the well is UNSTEADY STATE Skin effect is neglegable Storativity is known or can be estimated Hurr-Worthington’s Method 1: assumptions/Uses

16
**Hurr-Worthington’s Method 1: assumptions/Uses continued**

17
**Hurr-Worthington’s Method 2: The Equation**

18
**Hurr-Worthington’s Method 3: Remarks**

Procedure permits the calculation of (pseudo) transmissivity from a single drawdown observation in the pumped well. The accuracy decreases as Uw decreases If skin effect losses are not negligible, the observed unsteady- state drawdowns should be corrected before this method is applied Hurr-Worthington’s Method 3: Remarks

At t>0, the drawdown in the well is constant and its discharge is variable. Additionally: Flow in the well is an unsteady state Uw is < 0.01 Remark: if t value of rew is not known, S cannot be determined by this method Jacob-Lohman’s free flowing-well method 1: Assumptions
