An evaluation of techniques of simulating infiltration on hydraulic models
Fuller, Gerald A.
This thesis reports the results of a study undertaken to evaluate different techniques of simulating infiltration on hydraulic models. Different materials including chamois, plastic foam, porous plates, and drilled plastics were tested to determine their suitability for construction of watershed models. The results of a study of the hydraulics of overland flow are also included in this thesis. Some of the effects of the pertinent variables of time, slope, and soil intake on the geometrical properties of the water surface profile are given. In addition, field data on overland flow profiles are included in the Appendices.
