Abstract: Neglecting the effect of well radius may lead to a significant error in the predicted drawdown distribution near the pumping well area. New analytical solutions describing aquifer responses to a constant pumping or a constant head maintained at a finite-diameter well in a wedge-shaped aquifer are derived based on the image-well method and applicable to an arbitrarily located well in the system. The solutions are useful for quantifying groundwater exploitation from a wedge-shaped aquifer and for determining the hydrogeological parameters of a wedge-shaped aquifer in inverse problems.
