Abstract

Design curves are developed to simplify solution of the Hantush (1967) equation for groundwater mound build-up under a rectangular recharge basin. Curves are developed by analyzing a large number of solutions to the theoretical equation. Two sets of curves are developed, one for build-up beneath the center of the basin, the second for build-up anywhere in the field. Center-point curves are presented for 3 basins with length to width ratios of 2 to 1, and were easily developed. The more generalized curves are developed for the limited case of a 200 ft by 100 ft basin and are complicated by the many parameters involved. They require a multi-step process for utilization. A computer program, DELTAH, was developed to produce the required data by solving the Hantush equation. DELTAH may be the most valuable solution method as it can be applied to a variety of cases. A user's manual and example problem are included.
