Appendix AMeasurement Methods And Equipment

Some of the common measurement methods and equipment for determining pore-water pressure, water content, unsaturated hydraulic conductivity, salinity, and temperature are briefly described in this appendix to complement the text. The intent here is to generally acquaint the reader with some of the specialized equipment and measuring techniques associated with unsaturated soils. For standard tests to determine soil grain size, porosity, density, saturated hydraulic conductivity, and other parameters, the reader can consult any one of the soil mechanics texts (e.g. Lambe and Whitman, 1979) and laboratory manuals.
