Hydraulic Conductivity of Clays During Shrinkage1

  1. E. de Jong

Abstract

Abstract

The ratio of unsaturated to saturated hydraulic conductivity was determined for mixtures of glass beads and clay, and for a clay soil. In shrinking soils, the relative hydraulic conductivity remained fairly high over a wide range of mositure contents, while in nonshrinking soils the relative hydraulic conductivity rapidly approached zero with decreasing moisture content.
