|Title:||Estimating permeability function of soil from mini-disk infiltrometer tests||Authors:||Muhammad Amirul Haziq Yahya||Keywords:||Engineering::Civil engineering::Geotechnical||Issue Date:||2021||Publisher:||Nanyang Technological University||Source:||Muhammad Amirul Haziq Yahya (2021).

Therefore, the mini-disc infiltrometer fills the need of a portable and easy to execute equipment to estimate the permeability function of soil. The aim of this report is to determine the reliability of infiltration results from the mini-disc infiltrometer, in conjunction with inverse regression software DISC to estimate the a and n parameters of soil. Test locations around Nanyang Technological University (NTU) having slopes were chosen as test locations. To determine the reliability of results, laboratory test such as the falling-head permeability test and the pressure plate test were conducted and compared to the mini-disc and DISC results. The data obtained shows that infiltration data is consistent with the results from falling-head test. However, the SWCC generated from the DISC program and pressure plate test vary significantly from one another.||URI:||https://hdl.handle.net/10356/150316||Fulltext Permission:||restricted||Fulltext Availability:||With Fulltext|
