Description Usage Arguments Details Value Author(s) References See Also Examples

View source: R/compressive_properties.R

Description

It calculates the compressive parameters N and lambda using the pedo-transfer function from Defossez et al. (2003)

Usage

1
2
 
compressive_properties(water.content, soil=c("Loess", "Calcareous"))

Arguments

water.content

a numeric vector containing the values of gravimetric water content, \%

soil

the soil group 'Loess' or 'Calcareous'. See examples

Details

In Defossez et al. (2003), the recompression index, kappa, was assumed as 0.0058 for both soil group.

Value

N

the specific volume at p = 1 kPa, N

CI

the compression index, lambda

# EXAMPLE 1 - For Loess and Calcareous soil

water.content <- 25
compressive_properties(water.content=water.content, soil="Loess") 
compressive_properties(water.content=water.content, soil="Calcareous") 

# EXAMPLE 2 - For Loess soil

water.content <- seq(from=5,to=30,len=20)
out <- compressive_properties(water.content=water.content, soil="Loess") 
plot(x=water.content ,y=out$N, ylab="N", xlab="Bulk density") # plot for N
plot(x=water.content ,y=out$CI, ylab="Lambda", xlab="Bulk density") # plot for compression index


# EXAMPLE 3 - For Calcareous soil

water.content <- seq(from=5,to=30,len=20)
out <- compressive_properties(water.content=water.content, soil="Calcareous") 
plot(x=water.content ,y=out$N, ylab="N", xlab="Bulk density") # plot for N
plot(x=water.content ,y=out$CI, ylab="Lambda", xlab="Bulk density") # plot for compression index

# End (not run)
