NOTE: The Horizontal Wells pumping test solution is only available in the AquiferTest Pro edition.
For general information about the horizontal well solution in AquiferTest, please refer to the Section on Horizontal Wells.
In this example, a pumping test was performed in a confined aquifer underlain by an impermeable confining unit with a single pumping well and no observation wells screened over. The orientation of the pumping well screen is 90 degrees to the vertical shaft. AquifterTest Pro will be used to analyze the pumping test results.
 Launch AquiferTest and choose the "Create a new project" button. If you already have AquiferTest open, create a new project by clicking the (New) button from the toolbar, or select File/New from the main menu.
 Complete the fields in the Pumping Test tab as follows:
Project Information frame
•Project Name: Exercise 10
•Project No.: 10
•Location: Your Town
Pumping Test frame
•Name: Clonts and Ramey Analysis
•Performed by: Your Name
•Date: filled in automatically
•Site Plan: m
 All new projects have one default pumping well created in the Wells table (located in the bottom half of this window). Define the following well parameters for this well:
•Type: Pumping Well
•X [m]: 0
•R [m]: 0.075
•L [m]: 75
•b [m]: 50
The Pumping Test tab should look like the image below:
Next you will assign the discharge record to the pumping well.
 Click the Discharge tab at the top of the data input window. Ensure that the PW-1 well is highlighted
 Choose a Constant pumping rate of 1536 m3/day, as shown below:
Next you will assign water levels to the pumping well.
 Select the Water Levels tab.
 In the Static WL [m] field, type 0.
 In the Measurement point [m] field, type 0. The measurement point represents the distance from the center point along the length of the horizontal well screen (i.e. the pumping well coordinates) where water level measurements are being measured.
You will now import water level information in the Time - Water Level (TOC) format
 Select File > Import > Import Data... from the main menu
 Browse to the "C:\Users\Public\Documents\AquiferTest Pro\Exercises\Supporting Files\" folder
 Select the file horizontal.xls
 Click the Open button
The Water Levels tab should look like the image below:
 Click the Analysis tab
 Select PW1(Pumping Well) from the Data from list
The AquiferTest Analysis will show Time-Drawdown data on a linear-linear scale, as shown below:
 Above the analysis graph, click the Dimensionless button
 Under the analysis method, select Clonts and Ramey solution method. The analysis graph should look like the image below:
 Click the Analysis Parameters button. The Parameter window will appear
 Change the T, S and Kv/Kh values to 2.00E+3,1.05E-4 and 1.00E-1, respectively
 Click the X in the upper-right corner of the Parameter window to close the window
Finally, to improve the appearance of the analysis graph you will change some of the display settings
 In the Graph Control Frame (to the right of the graph), expand the Drawdown Axis item
 Change the Minimum to 10, enable the gridlines, and unselect the Reverse checkbox
 Now, expand the Time Axis item
 Change the minimum to 0.0001, value format to 0e-0 and enable the gridlines
Your analysis graph should look similar to the one shown below.
This concludes the horizontal well exercise. The next exercise provides an example of the Agarwal (1970) pumping test analysis method for wellbore storage and skin effects. You have the choice of exiting AquiferTest or continuing on to the next exercise.
