ASTM WK72606

    Revision of D5850 - 18 Standard Test Method for (Analytical Procedure) Determining Transmissivity, Storage Coefficient, and Anisotropy Ratio from a Network of Partially Penetrating Wells

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: D5850 - 20

    Developed by Subcommittee: D18.21 | Committee D18 | Contact Staff Manager



    WK72606


    Keywords

    anisotropy; aquifers; aquifer tests; control wells; groundwater; hydraulic conductivity; observation well; storage coefficient; transmissivity;;

    Rationale

    It has been noted that several D18.21 Standard Test Methods do not generate data, but instead mathematically manipulate data obtained from other tests to evaluate aquifer characteristics. This standard has been revised into a practice in accordance with the ASTM Style Manual (Blue Book). In addition, minor editorials corrections, caveat updates have been made.
