    This Review contains major "Infiltrometer"- related terms, short phrases and links grouped together in the form of Encyclopedia article.


  1. Infiltrometer is a device used to measure the rate of water infiltration into soil or other porous media.
  2. An infiltrometer is a means of collecting and measuring the run off. (Web site)


  1. Commonly used infiltrometer are single ring or double ring infiltrometer, and also disc permeameter.
  2. As a part of this development, user-friendly software was developed for smooth operation of the infiltrometer. (Web site)
  3. This stops all operations of the infiltrometer and saves data collected during the test on a hard or floppy disc. (Web site)
  4. The water reservoir of the tension infiltrometer served as the constant-head (approximately 10 mm) Mariotte device.
  5. We will use a large-diameter double-ring infiltrometer to determine whether macropore flow is occurring in a given location. (Web site)

Infiltration Rate

  1. Infiltration rates were determined using the single-ring (20-cm diameter) infiltrometer method ( Bouwer, 1986).
  2. The water infiltration rate was measured with a tension infiltrometer at three different pressures, -1, -5 and -9.5cm.
  3. Ponded infiltration rates (single-ring infiltrometer) of clay loam soil in 1997 and 1998 under dryland and irrigation after 24 yr of manure application.


  1. Infiltrometer walls can be made out of anything that will not absorb water and can be any shape. (Web site)
  2. The recycling infiltrometer for furrows is shown in Figure 26. (Web site)
  3. Figure 3 shows results of one of the tests conducted during field testing of the infiltrometer. (Web site)
  4. The application of the ponding; technique to furrows requires a slightly different infiltrometer configuration. (Web site)
  5. A pre-measured volume, about 80-90 percent of the infiltrometer capacity of water similar to the irrigation water, is added quickly to the infiltrometer. (Web site)


  1. Also harvest the whole infiltrometer plots by machine. (Web site)
  2. The crop inside the infiltrometer must be treated exactly the same as the crop in the remainder of the plot. (Web site)
  3. In infiltrometer plots the whole enclosed 4 m 2 area should be harvested. (Web site)

Double Ring Infiltrometer

  1. Double ring infiltrometer requires two rings: an inner and outer ring. (Web site)
  2. The double ring infiltrometer is a simple instrument which is used to determine the infiltration rate of water into the soil.
  3. The double ring infiltrometer is preferred because the outer ring helps in reducing the error that may result from lateral flow in the soil. (Web site)


  1. The runoff flows under gravity into a container in a trench, one container per infiltrometer. (Web site)
  2. A60 litre container will collect 15 mm runoff from a four square metre infiltrometer (1 mm of rain falling on 1m 2 is 1litre). (Web site)

  4. A 60-litre container is sufficient to collect 15 mm of runoff from a four-square-metre infiltrometer (1 mm of rain falling on 1m-- is 1 litre). (Web site)


  1. Matula, S. and Dirksen, C. (1989). Automated regulating and recording system for cylinder infiltrometer. (Web site)
  2. The automated infiltrometer worked very satisfactorily during field trials and has considerable potential as a research and teaching tool. (Web site)


  1. An automated double ring infiltrometer has been developed to overcome these limitations. (Web site)
  2. The infiltrometer developed in this study overcomes the limitations and difficulties mentioned earlier for those developed in the past. (Web site)
  3. The infiltrometer will be constructed to allow for varying inner and outer ring diameters, depending on the site conditions. (Web site)


  1. Check to see whether the infiltrometer data from your study are similar. (Web site)
  2. Table 4 gives one set of cylinder infiltrometer data taken from a field study. (Web site)
