- ... Equations are derived, from a capillary tube model, that predict vertical nonsteady-state drainage from soil columns over the entire time of drainage for which experimental data are available. The model assumes that a soil column is a bundle of capillaries of various radii with the effective conductivity of the column decreasing as drainage progresses. The conductivity is first considered to be a ...
