Analytical Solution for Two-Dimensional Solute Transport in Finite Aquifer with Time-Dependent Source Concentration Academic Article uri icon


  • Using the Hankel Transform Technique, an analytical solution is derived for two-dimensional solute transport in a homogeneous isotropic aquifer. The aquifer is subjected to time-dependent point source contamination. The solution is derived under two conditions: (1) the flow velocity in the aquifer is a sinusoidally varying function and (2) the flow velocity is an exponentially decreasing function. Initially the aquifer is assumed solute free. The analytical solution is illustrated using an example. © 2010 ASCE.
