Water Movement in Uniform Soils During Constant-flux Infiltration1

  1. K. M. Perroux,
  2. D. E. Smiles and
  3. I. White2



An analysis is presented for constant-flux infiltration of water in soil based on the flux-concentration relation. The analysis is compared with laboratory experiments on constant-flux infiltration into columns of fine sand and silty clay loam. It is shown that the effect of gravity is small for the early stage and that during this stage sufficiently accurate predictions of moisture profile development can be made by using the simpler absorption analysis of I. White, D. E. Smiles, and K. M. Perroux.
