Hydraulic Conductivity of Clays During Shrinkage1

  1. E. de Jong



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.
