The M.D. Fredlund dialog contains the equation parameters necessary to mathematically represent the SWCC curve when using the methodology published by M.D. Fredlund (2000) for the Bimodal Fit. A description of the theory can be found in the SVSOILS Theory Manual.

 

afb: The afb field refers to a fitting parameter in the M.D. Fredlund (2000) Bimodal equation.

 

nfb: The nfb field refers to another fitting parameter in the M.D. Fredlund (2000) Bimodal equation.

 

mfb: The mfb field refers to another fitting parameter in the M.D. Fredlund (2000) Bimodal equation.

 

jfb: The jfb field refers to another fitting parameter in the M.D. Fredlund (2000) Bimodal equation.

 

kfb: The kfb field refers to another fitting parameter in the M.D. Fredlund (2000) Bimodal equation.

 

lfb: The lfb field refers to another fitting parameter in the M.D. Fredlund (2000) Bimodal equation.

 

Split, s: The Split field refers to the fraction attributable to the first portion of the grain-size curve when starting with the coarse fraction.

 

Fit: The Fit indicates whether the experimental data has been fit with the M.D. Fredlund (2000) Bimodal equation.

 

Error: The Error field shows the difference between the fitted data and the laboratory values in terms of R2.
