1D, 2D, and 3D Infiltration for Irrigation Academic Article uri icon


  • Models for one-, two-, and three-dimensional infiltration for irrigation are derived using an energy equation and Darcy's law. The models were verified with Fok and Chiang's (4) experimental data. A good agreement is found between the model-computed and observed values of infiltration. Average relative error of cumulative infiltration values is less than 5%. ASCE.
