- ... Soils often exhibit a variety of small-scale heterogeneities such as inter-aggregate pores and voids which partition flow into separate regions. In this paper a methodological approach is discussed for characterizing the hydrological behaviour of a heterogeneous clayey-sandy soil in the presence of structural inter-aggregate pores. For the clay soil examined, it was demonstrated that, coupling the ...
