Abstract The soil permittivity is affected by the volume fractions of bound and free water, but also by the geometries of the soil components and the shape of water inclusions. Allophanic clays have a hollow spherical geometry with high water holding capacity, and thus representing an ideal system to investigate geometrical effects on the permittivity of water in porous media. A new weighted averaging procedure is developed which provides estimates of the permittivity of rotationally hindered… CONTINUE READING
