by R.W. Nelson,


Serial Information: Journal of the Irrigation and Drainage Division, 1961, Vol. 87, Issue 4, Pg. 41-54


Document Type: Journal Paper

Abstract:

Approximate method for including variable permeability in design procedure is presented; use of water table contour map for transposing flow system in heterogeneous soil to equivalent system having constant permeability throughout; reverse-transformation of prediction from uniform soil system to field problem gives expected condition after drainage facilities are installed.
