Assessment of soil compaction using soil shrinkage modelling: experimental data and perspectives



Assessment of soil compaction using soil shrinkage modelling: experimental data and perspectives



Soil and Tillage Research 88(1/2): 65-79



Soil compaction assessment is an important and difficult issue. In particular, it is difficult to quantify separately the compaction of macro-pores and micro-pores in the soil, and to account for spatial variability in soil properties at field scale. According to recent publications, the measurement and modelling of soil shrinkage curves (ShC) could help to overcome these difficulties. This is discussed in this paper on the basis of a field study.
