Description Introduction to Ground-Water Hydraulics is an electronic book that is designed to help the user learn the theory of ground-water hydraulics through self-study. It was originally developed by Gordon D. Bennett (U.S. Geological Survey, 1976) for which he received the Geological Society of America's Meinzer award. Bennett's self-guided tutorial is presented with hyper-text links between questions on ground-water hydraulics in the following seven chapters: Definitions and General Concepts. Darcy's Law. Applications of Darcy's Law to Field Problems. Ground-water Storage. Unidirectional Nonequilibrium Flow. Nonequilibrium Flow to a Well. Finite Difference Methods. Programmed instruction is an approach to a subject, a method of learning; it does not eliminate mental effort from the learning process. Answering a question correctly "jumps" you to a full explanation of why the answer was corrrect, followed by another question that further tests your understanding. An incorrect answer is explained and you are sent back to the original question to make another choice. Some sections of this program need only be read; others must be worked through with pencil and paper. Some of the questions can be answered directly; others require some form of calculation. You may have frequent occasion, as you work through the text, to consult standard texts or references in mathematics, fluid mechanics, and hydrology. The Electronic Book Version of The Introduction to Ground-Water Hydraulics is composed of "live" Mathcad documents that are hyperlinked to the Table of Contents and are searchable. This software is a standalone program published in the same format used for all of Mathcad's Electronic Handbooks. It may be annotated by the user; the text and graphics may be copied into other Windows applications. The electronic book also comes with an extensive searchable index.
