Abstract

Free surface and saturated-unsaturated flow models are applied to the problem of constant head borehole infiltration tests for determining saturated hydraulic conductivity above a water table. Based on saturated-unsaturated simulations in four different homogeneous, isotropic soils, an empirical solution is developed for deep water table conditions to estimate saturated hydraulic conductivity with improved accuracy.
