The Beyer prediction uses the Beyer (1964) equation to estimate the saturated hydraulic conductivity.


D60: D60 is the diameter of the 60% passing particle-size (mm).


D10: D10 is the diameter of the 10% passing particle-size (mm).


De: De is the effective grain diameter with 10% coverage on the grain-size distribution curve (mm).


Beyer Ksat: Beyer (1964) ksat refers to the saturated coefficient of permeability (m/s).
