The Hazen prediction uses the Hazen's (1911) equation to estimate the saturated hydraulic conductivity.

 

Hazen's Constant: The Hazen’s Constant is the constant used as part of the estimation procedure.

 

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

 

Hazen's ksat: Hazen’s (1911) ksat refers to the saturated coefficient of permeability (m/s).
