Calculation of hydraulic conductivity from suction permeameter measurements


, : Calculation of hydraulic conductivity from suction permeameter measurements. Soil Science 152(5): 321-325

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.

A permeameter was designed to eliminate boundary flow errors that occur during saturated soil hydraulic conductivity measurement. Advantages of the permeameter are its adaptability for use with either disturbed or undisturbed soil samples, the eli...
