Synopsis: This book defines the dependence of hydraulic conductivity on porous medium characteristics and properties of the fluid by means of theoretical and applied analysis. The book nears closure with graphical methods that are sometimes used to estimate hydraulic conductivity using grain-size analysis. Another chapter presents problems and resulting solution; however, example problems are presented throughout the book. Most of the chapters will contain equations that use metric or consistent units. The final chapter is the original text by M. Vukovic and A. Soro: 'Determination of Hydraulic Conductivity of Porous Media from Grain-Size Composition', the computer program from this book is also included on the CD.
The computer program, Grain-size Analysis, supplements the book, and can be used to estimate porosity and hydraulic conductivity from grain-size data. The program uses six of the ten methods presented and evaluated. It is a user friendly and runs under the PC Windows operating system.
About the Author: Dr. Michael Kasenow, one of WRP's highly regarded and respected authors, is the staff hydrogeologist in the Department of Geography and Geology at Eastern Michigan University. Dr. Kasenow is an innovative researcher in the field of aquifer analysis, but more importantly, he is a ground-water consultant who actually does real world work. He is a Certified Ground Water Professional (NGWA/AGWSE), and a Certified Professional Geologist (AIPG). He was a major player in the organization and development of the current hydrogeology and environmental analysis curriculum at EMU. For two year he was Director of Research for the Southeast Regional Ground Water Education in Michigan Center (SER-GEMS). He received his Bachelor of Science n Geology from EMU, and his MS and Ph.D. from Western Michigan University. His current research is primarily concerned with the estimation of aquifer parameters, and the relationship between lakes, rivers, wetlands and ground water. Dr. Kasenow's research in regard to aquifer analysis has recently appeared in the The Professional Geologist and will soon appear in Environmental & Engineering Geoscience.
