Project number: TH04030492
Project title: INV-FLOW: Technology for direct measurement of vertical groundwater flow and zonal quantification of well inflows based on electromagnetic flow induction
Programme: TAČR Epsilon
Project coordinator: FES CULS
Project leader: prof. ing. Pavel Pech, CSc.
Project partners: DEKONTA a.s.
Contact person: Ing. Petr Bašta
Project schedule: 2019 – 2020
Total project budget: 4 195 000 Kč
In the frame of INV-FLOW project a device for zonal measurement of vertical groundwater flow and direct quantification of inflows into groundwater pumping wells with unit resolution will be designed, constructed and tested. The construction design will consist of 2 electromagnetic induction flowmeters and 1-2 plate or pneumatic packers. In the first year of the project the fundamental design with variants for the different required measuring ranges will be presented, the second year will be dedicated to laboratory and semi-operational testing in real conditions and comparison of results according to design variants. The actual boreholes will be compared with geophysical well-logging measurements. Subsequently, the software for evaluating the measured data will be developed.
