Void Ratio

on . Posted in Geotechnical Engineering

partially saturated soil 1Void ratio, abbreviated as e, a dimensionless number, is the ratio of the volume of voids to the volume of solids.


Void Ratio formula

\(\large{ e = \frac {V_v} {V_s } }\)
Symbol English Metric
\(\large{ e }\) = void ratio \(\large{dimensionless}\)
\(\large{ V_s }\) = volume of solids \(\large{ft^3}\)  \(\large{m^3}\)
\(\large{ V_v} \) = volume of voids \(\large{ft^3}\)  \(\large{m^3}\)
