Problem 59007. Compute head profiles for steady 1D flow through soils in series
Cody Problem 58966 involves compute the head profile for steady, one-dimensional flow in a homogeneous aquifer (i.e., one with uniform hydraulic conductivity), and Cody Problem 52070 involves computing the effective conductivity of simple heterogeneous aquifers (i.e., those with multiple soil units either all in parallel or all in series). This problem asks solvers to combine the ideas from the two problems for soil units in series.
Write a function to compute the head h at specified points x for steady 1D flow through soils in series. Other input to the function is the locations of the boundaries of the soil units, their hydraulic conductivities, the heads at and , and a Boolean variable that is true for confined aquifers and false for unconfined aquifers.
