Solutions

Select either the Professional or Standard version of AQTESOLV for Windows to meet the requirements of your aquifer test analyses.

The Standard (STD) version provides a set of pumping test and slug test solutions comparable to other commercially available software packages.
The Professional (PRO) version offers the most complete set of aquifer test solutions. Choose the Professional version for access to sophisticated solutions and features not found in other commercially available software packages.

Single-Well Solutions

AQTESOLV for Windows includes many solutions for use in the analysis of single-well aquifer tests.

The Theis (1935) step-test solution includes linear and nonlinear well losses and allows you to compute well efficiency.
The Papadopulos-Cooper (1967), Moench (1997), Moench (1985) and Moench (1984) solutions include wellbore storage effects for pumping tests performed in confined, unconfined, leaky and fractured aquifers.
The Bouwer-Rice (1976), Hvorslev (1951) and Cooper-Bredehoeft-Papadopulos (1967) methods analyze slug tests in unconfined and confined aquifers.

Large-Diameter Well Solutions

All of the pumping tests solutions in AQTESOLV for Windows include variable-rate analysis.  With this feature, you can use any of the pumping test solutions in the program to simulate stepped variations in pumping (including recovery).

Variable-Rate and Recovery Test Analysis

Click to enlarge image!All of the pumping tests solutions in AQTESOLV for Windows include variable-rate analysis.  With this feature, you can use any of the type curve solutions in the program to simulate recovery as well as drawdown during a pumping test.

Partial Penetration Analysis

AQTESOLV for Windows includes solutions for partially penetrating wells in confined, unconfined and leaky aquifers.
