Calculation of hydraulic conductivity from suction permeameter measurements






Soil Science 152(5): 321-325

Calculation of hydraulic conductivity from suction permeameter measurements

Suction permeameters are now commonly used for measuring unsaturated hydraulic properties of soil. The hydraulic conductivity (k) is calculated from the steady state flow rate of water through a core of soil which has a permeameter on the top and which is open to the atmosphere at the bottom.
