Environmental Engineering Hydrology__

__CHAPTER IX__**: Groundwater Hydrology **

In this chapter, groundwater related concepts such as
porosity and permeability will be examined.
Measurement of permeability using Constant Head and Falling Head
permeameters will be discussed. Aquifers
and springs will be introduced. Movement
of groundwater will be examined. Flow in
confined and unconfined aquifers will be discussed. Well systems and their yields from confined
and unconfined aquifers will be presented.

__Study Plan:__

·
Learning
the occurrence of groundwater from precipitation. Learning the concepts of porosity and
permeability. Deriving the permeability
formulas for constant head and falling head permeameters. (Section 9.1, 9.1.1, 9.1.2).

·
Learning
about the aquifers and springs. (Section 9.2).

·
Deriving
the flow rate formulations for groundwater movement in terms of aquifer
parameters of width, depth, permeability, and energy gradient slope. Defining the term of transmissivity in
aquifers. (Sections 9.3). *Example problem 9.1.*

·
Construction
of energy balance using Bernoulli equation for confined and unconfined aquifers
(Section 9.4, 9.5). *Example problem 9.2.*

·
Learning
about the well systems. Deriving
formulations for the yields of wells in confined and unconfined aquifers
(Sections 9.7, 9.7.1, 9.7.2). *Example
problems 9.3 and 9.4.*

· Homework problems 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 9, 12.
