A general solution for determining the storage coefficient from multi-step pumping test recovery data is suggested. This solution is essentially based on the method of Banton and Bangoy (1996), which used single-step pumping test recovery data. The suggested solution can be applied to any-step pumping test recovery data. We have demonstrated the applicability of the general solution to single-, double-, and triple-step pumping and/or step-drawdown test data partially described in Lee and Lee (1999). The estimates of storage coefficient as well as transmissivity are well consistent with the values from other methods for pumping phase data.

양수시험시 획득되는 회복자료만을 이용하여 저유계수를 추정하는 일반해를 제시하였다. Banton and Bangoy(1996)가 제시한 단 단계(single-step) 양수시험에서 얻는 회복자료를 이용한 저유계수 추정해를 일반적인 다단계 (multi-step)시험 회복자료에도 적용 가능하게 확장한 것이다. 본 연구에서 구한 일반 해를 이용하여 저유계수와 투수계수를 구한 결과 다른 방법으로 구한 결과 값과 잘 일치하였다.
