A simulation of two-well injection-withdrawal tracer tests in stratified granular aquifers is presented for two widely separated sites substantially different in terms of vertical distributions of hydraulic conductivity, well spacings, flow rates, test durations and tracer travel distances. Simulations of these tests were performed in three dimensions using the curvilinear finite element model developed in the previous paper of this series. The simulations incorporated measured vertical variations in relative hydraulic conductivity and local dispersivity values that are small fractions (between 1/1000 and 1/100) of the spacing between the injection and the withdrawal wells. The local dispersivities are used to account for local hydrodynamic dispersion and are chosen independently so that they are not affected by the scales of the test. For the Chalk River site, predicted and measured breakthrough curves at the withdrawal well are in good agreement over the earlier part of the test duration.
