The present work concerns the calculation of the infinitesimal porosity by using the Menger's Sponge model. This computation is based on the grossone theory considering the pore volume estimation for the Menger's Sponge and afterwards the classical definition of the porosity, given by the ratio between the volume of voids and the total volume (voids plus(More)
A network analysis is used to investigate the low connections of natural river channels. At the basin scale, the river networks are analyzed according to the Horton-Strahler hierarchy. We propose a quantitative criterion for the average junction degree as a function of a fixed hierarchical order of the network and independent of the usual scaling laws. The(More)
A fixed-mass multifractal (FMA) analysis was used to investigate natural river networks and braided channels. In particular, while the study of natural river networks was performed with fixed-size algorithms (FSAs) in the past, the analysis of natural braided channels was not pursued before to our knowledge. Results showed the multifractal and(More)
Hydraulic conductivity and effective porosity values for the confined sandy loam aquifer of the Montalto Uffugo (Italy) test field were obtained by laboratory and field measurements; the first ones were carried out on undisturbed soil samples and the others by slug and aquifer tests. A direct simple-scaling analysis was performed for the whole range of(More)
