    Abstract: Infiltration is the flow of water through the soil surface into a porous medium under gravity action and pressure effects. First the water moist soil grains and subsequently the surplus water moves down due to resulting gravitational force. The present study deals with the effect of compaction state and water content on infiltration property, in pa... Show More
