Review of soil-water characteristic curve equations
Practical applications of unsaturated soil mechanics still lag behind the state-of-the-art knowledge. The main stumbling block is the time-consuming processes involved in the measurement of the unsaturated soil parameters ...
Discussion of “unsaturated hydraulic conductivity of two compacted barrier soils”
Unsaturated hydraulic conductivities were measured in the laboratory and the field for two compacted fine-grained soils used as barrier layers in landfill final covers. The instantaneous profile method was used for the ...
Permeability functions for unsaturated soils
This paper examines the three categories of permeability functions for unsaturated soils, including empirical, macroscopic, and statistical models. The theoretical backgrounds and performance of each category are examined ...
