    Abstract

    Manuals are given for several laboratory methods for determining hydraulic conductivity, water retention and shrinkage characteristics of soil. Measurement techniques described are: the constant-head and falling-head methods for saturated conductivitythe drip infiltrometer for unsaturated conductivity, Wind's evaporation method for both water retention and unsaturated conductivity, and the hanging water column and pressure plates for water retention. A method for the shrinkage characteristic is givenas well. Taking soil samples and pretreatment of tensiometers are also described.
