Experiments were conducted to quantify the effects of entrapped air on water infiltration into a loamy sand. Transparent three-dimensional (3-D) and 2-D columns were used for experiments carried out for two infiltration conditions: (1) when air was free to move ahead of the wetting front and leave the bottom of the column (air draining) and (2) when air was confined ahead of the wetting front and hence could escape only through the soil surface (air confining). The measurement setup was… CONTINUE READING
