We propose a hysteretic model of hydraulic properties for dual-porosity soils based on the bimodal van Genuchten model and Kool and Parker (K&P) hysteresis model. Hysteresis is considered only in the first pore domain, affecting mainly higher water contents, while a nonhysteretic behavior is assumed in the second pore domain, affecting mainly lower water contents. The main drying and wetting curves are described with the same set of parameters except for α₁, which is different for the drying…
