AQTESOLV introduces Active Type Curves, a new feature that greatly enhances visual curve matching. Active Type Curves expand visual curve matching capabilities for variable-rate pumping tests and aquifer systems with leakage, delayed gravity response and double-porosity behavior.
Traditional methods of visual curve matching implemented by other aquifer test analysis software are limited by static type curves and static type curve families. Static curves prepared for a single set of conditions are unable to accomodate more complex conditions arising from boundary effects, variable pumping rates, aquitard storage and double-porosity behavior. Active Type Curves, which automatically adapt to specific test and aquifer conditions, overcome this limitation.
