Volume of Void

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Geotechnical Engineering

partially saturated soil 1Volume of void, abbreviated as V_v, is the ratio of total volume of soil minus volume of solid soil.

 

Volume of Void formula

\(\large{ V_v =  V_t - V_s  }\) 
Symbol English Metric
\(\large{ V_v }\) = volume of void \(\large{ft^3}\) \(\large{m^3}\)
\(\large{ V_t } \) = total volume of soil \(\large{ft^3}\) \(\large{m^3}\)
\(\large{ V_s } \) = volume of solid soil \(\large{ft^3}\) \(\large{m^3}\)
