Description

The pore water suction at the point of hydraulic cut-off occurs at the point where the residual water content, obtained from Dexter et al. (2008), intercepts with the Groenevelt & Grant (2004) retention curve.

Usage

1
hydraulicCutOff(theta_R, k0, k1, n, x0 = 6.653)

Arguments

theta_R

a parameter that represents the residual water content at the the Dexter's (2008) Water Retention Model.

k0

a parameter value, extracted from the water retention curve based on the Groenevelt & Grant (2004) formula.

k1

a parameter value, extracted from the water retention curve based on the Groenevelt & Grant (2004) formula.

n

a parameter value, extracted from the water retention curve based on the Groenevelt & Grant (2004) formula.

x0

the value of pF (pore water suction) at which the soil water content becomes zero. The default is 6.653.

Value

The water suction at the point of hydraulic cut-off.
