- ... Field measurements of air entry value and hydraulic conductivity of soil are obtained with a covered cylinder infiltrometer equipped with standpipe and vacuum gage. Tests are normally completed in approximately 30 minutes. The resulting data are used to construct step functions relating hydraulic conductivity to (negative) soil water pressure for sorption and desorption. These functions may be use ...
