Mechanics of Water Movement and Storage in Soils: A Teaching Technique1

  1. J. A. Hobbs and
  2. L. E. Wittsell2



Water movement and water storage are described for a tank equipped with a porous cover and three storage sections. Empirical equations developed by hydraulic engineers to account for water flow are employed. Either graphic methods or integration can be used to determine how the velocity of water flow and the rate of water storage or loss change with time. Analogies are drawn between water movement and storage in the tank and water movement and storage in the soil.
