ASSUMPTIONS OF DUPUIT’S THEORY

Following are the some assumptions of Dupuit’s Theory:

  1. Aquifer is homogeneous, isotropic and of infinite aerial extent.
  2. The velocity of flow is r oportional to tangent of hydraulic gradient and not sine.
  3. The flow is horizontal and uniform throughout the vertical section.
  4. Entire thickness of aquifer is contributing water to the well.
  5. Coefficient of transmissibility remains constant at all places and all the time.
  6. Flow is laminar and Darcy’s law is applicable.
  7. Ground water conditions remain constant all the time.
