ASSUMPTIONS OF DUPUIT’S THEORY
Following are the some assumptions of Dupuit’s Theory:
- Aquifer is homogeneous, isotropic and of infinite aerial extent.
- The velocity of flow is r oportional to tangent of hydraulic gradient and not sine.
- The flow is horizontal and uniform throughout the vertical section.
- Entire thickness of aquifer is contributing water to the well.
- Coefficient of transmissibility remains constant at all places and all the time.
- Flow is laminar and Darcy’s law is applicable.
- Ground water conditions remain constant all the time.
