An analytical solution is obtained to predict the contaminant concentration along unsteady ground-water ﬂow in semi-in ﬁnite aquifer. Initially,the aquifer is not supposed to be solute free ,i.e.,aquifer is not clean.A time-dependent source concentration is considered at the origin of the aquifer and at the other end of the aquifer, it is supposed to be zero. The time-dependent forms of unsteady velocities are considered in which one such form ,i.e., sinusoidal form represents the seasonal pattern in a year in tropical regions. The Laplace Transformation Technique (LTT)is used to get an analytical solution and a graphical representation is made through MATLAB.

Groundwater contamination due to multiple sources occurring in mega cities was modelled. One constant source contamination was considered at the source boundary, whereas other sources may join in between at various locations at different times. Initially, the aquifer was contamination-free in mega cities and was subsequently contaminated by means of different sources in due course of time. One-dimensional ADE (Advection Dispersion Equation) for modelling groundwater contamination was used and solved analytically in the semi-infinite aquifer domain for a finite number of point sources. A numerical solution wasalso obtained for two sources to compare analytical solutions. Results were examined for different velocity profiles to show the maximum contaminant concentration level with distance. This may be helpful to model the maximum possible number of point sources of contamination (i.e., it represents approximately what happens in the field situation). Some remedial measures may be taken to overcome these kinds of contamination problems in mega cities by treating the sources so that recharge of the aquifer is not affected.

The present study investigates two important though relatively unexplored aspects of non-linear filtration through porous media. The first aspect is the influence of viscosity variation over the coefficients of the governing equations used for modelling non-linear filtration through porous media. Velocity and hydraulic gradient data obtained for a wide range of fluid viscosities (8.03E-07 to 3.72E-05 N/m$^2$) were studied. An increase in fluid viscosity resulted in an increased pressure loss through packing which can be quantified using the coefficients of the governing equations. Coefficients of Forchheimer equation represent linearly increasing trend with the kinematic viscosity. On the other hand, coefficient of Wilkins equation represents similar values for different Cuid viscosities and remained unaffected by the variation in packing properties. Obtained data were utilized to understand the nature of flow transition in porous media. Behaviour of polynomial and Power-law coefficient with variation in Cow velocity were also examined. Critical Reynolds number corresponding to the deviation of flow from Darcy regime varies with the porous packing and was observed to be in the range of 0–100. Coefficients of polynomial (Forchheimer) model were observed to be independent of the range of flow velocity, whereas the Power law coefficients are extremely sensitive to the data.
