Suction profiles and scale factors for unsaturated flow under increased gravitational field
Abstract: Scale factors for centrifuge modelling have been traditionally defined using dimensional analysis concepts. This is the case, for example, of centrifuge modelling of unsaturated water flow. However, scale factors ...
Determination of the hydraulic conductivity function of a highly compressible material based on tests with saturated samples
Abstract: An alternative procedure to determine the hydraulic conductivity function (k-function) based on relationships between saturated hydraulic conductivity and void ratio and between air-entry value and void ratio ...
Determination of the soil water characteristic curve of highly compressible materials: Case study of pulp and paper by-product
Abstract: A technique was developed for the determination of various points of the soil-water characteristic curve (SWCC)—including the air entry value (AEV)—of compressible materials from one single test. The testing ...
