Saturated Soil

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Fluid Dynamics

Saturated soil occurs when all of the voids and cracks are filled with a fluid.

formula

\(V_t = V_v \;+\; V_s \)

Where:

\(V_t \) = total volume

\(V_v \) = voids volume

\(V_s \) = solids volume

Solve for:

\(V_v = V_t \;-\; V_s \)

\(V_s = V_t \;-\; V_v \)
