Design for a Field Sprinkler Infiltrometer1
- S. J. Zegelin and
- I. White2
A sprinkler infiltrometer using air pressure to drive water through an interchangeable nozzle onto a field plot has been designed and tested for use in infiltration and redistribution studies. Application rates with uniform distribution are selected by electronically pulsing a solenoid valve between the pressurized water supply and the nozzle. A field test demonstrated the use of the infiltrometer in measuring the time to incipient ponding and the development of the water content profile.Please view the pdf by using the Full Text (PDF) link under 'View' to the left.
