Chemical Industries #3: Multilayered Aquifier Systemsby A. H. D. Cheng
Synopses & Reviews
Offers a systematic and unified approach to the classical theories and recent techniques of multilayered aquifer systems. Clarifies governing principles and facilitates industrial problem solving. Uses the automated numerical Laplace inversion procedure to simplify mathematical materials.
Book News Annotation:
A reference for groundwater professionals practicing the multilayered aquifer theory. Early chapters provide a pedagogical presentation of the multilayered aquifer theory, starting with classical Theis theory. Material is presented with simplified mathematics using an automated numerical Laplace inversion procedure. To enable readers to apply the theory, two types of tools are constructed: one based on Fortran and the other based on Mathematica. Later chapters introduce unconventional subjects, including sensitivity analysis, stochastic analysis, and fractured aquifers. A chapter on parameter determination uses a computer automated, nonlinear least square approach in place of traditional type-curve matching. Can be used as a graduate text for students with background in calculus, differential equations, and groundwater hydrology. Cheng is professor of civil and environmental engineering at the University of Delaware.

Referenced and illustrated with over 860 literature citations, drawings, and tables, Multilayered Aquifer Systems: Fundamentals and Applications offers a systematic and unified approach to the classical theories and recent techniques of multilayered aquifer systems. The author clarifies governing principles and facilitates industrial problem solving. He uses the automated numerical Laplace inversion procedure to simplify mathematical material. Topics include non-leaky and leaky aquifers, stochastic analysis, computer methods, groundwater in fractured aquifers, and more. It supplies specialized tools based on Fortran programs and macro packages for MathematicaO.
