Application of the Preisach model to soil-moisture hysteresis. (English) Zbl 1136.76048
Bertotti, Giorgio (ed.) et al., The science of hysteresis. Vol. III. Hysteresis in materials. Amsterdam: Elsevier/Academic Press (ISBN 978-0-12-369433-1/hbk; 978-0-12-480874-4/set). 689-744 (2006).
Hysteresis in porous media flows is due to the capillarity effect. This work brings a detailed comparison of experimental measurements of soil-moisture characteristics with the modeling assumption that the dependence between pressure and saturation can be represented by the Preisach model.
