Abstract

Infiltration from constant application rates as predicted by the H. N. Holtan equation and the R. G. Mein-C. L. Larson equation was compared to values determined experimentally. Both equations did a good job of predicting infiltration during latter and middle portions of the experimental runs. The Mein and Larson equation did a good job of predicting time to start of runoff, while the Holtan equation generally underpredicted infiltration during initial stages of the runs.
