Abstract

Vertical soil water flow is analyzed for steady-state conditions through stratified profiles. All steady-state conditions are considered including upward flow (evaporation) and downward flow (infiltration) for an arbitrary number of layers of different materials. An algorithm is developed utilizing both analytical and numerical techniques, but perhaps more importantly, the framework provides a qualitative assessment somewhat independent of the mathematical description. Three examples are given including comparisons to earlier experimental results.
