Oscillations in two wells drilled in a confined aquifer

  • Göran Rehbinder


If two wells are connected to a confined aquifer and the water level in one of the wells is perturbed, damped oscillations in the wells might occur. A criterion in terms of nondimensional parameters is derived which tells when the damping is critical.
