Limiting source dimensions of three-dimensional analytical point source model for solute transport
This article presents a criterion for limiting source dimensions of the instantaneous point source model. The source dimensions are required for applying superposition of the point sources in space to represent the non-point sources. The criterion generates less than one percent error when compared to the existing finite source model. A comparison between the existing point and the finite source models is conducted. It is found that the finite source model does not give acceptable output at all times, if series distribution is used to compute the error function. The front and tail of the ...
