Question# 5 Design the tubewell for the following data?

Solution

Given q=0.20 m3/sec , b= 40m , k= 80m/day = .000925925 m/sec , re =300 m ,he

=40m

drawdown= 1.5m and hw= (40-1.5)=38.5m Equation of discharge in confined aquifer is given by

(i) Radius of circle influence 300m (ii) Thickness of confined aquifer 40m (iii) Yield required .20

Substitute the given value in Eq. (i) , we get

.20
