Edelman#

class Edelman(cutoff=0.999, **kwargs)[source]#

The function of Edelman, describing the propagation of an instantaneous water level change into an adjacent half-infinite aquifer.

Parameters
  • up (bool or None, optional) – indicates whether a positive stress will cause the head to go up (True, default) or down (False), if None the head can go both ways.

  • gain_scale_factor (float, optional) – the scale factor is used to set the initial value and the bounds of the gain parameter, computed as 1 / gain_scale_factor.

  • cutoff (float, optional) – proportion after which the step function is cut off.

Notes

The Edelman function is explained in Edelman [1947].

The impulse response function for this class can be viewed on the Documentation website or using latexify by running the following code in a Jupyter notebook environment:

ps.Edelman.impulse
