SVSOILS  Material 
The detailed operation of SVSOILS is covered in the SVSOILS  Material dialog. A description is provided related to the data required for each soil property. The theory associated with each estimation method and each fitting method can be found in the theory manual.
Soil property data can be bestfit with an equation if laboratory data is present. It is also possible to predict soil property functions using an appropriate theoretical methodology. Soil grainsize distributions, compression curves, and soilwater characteristic curve (SWCC) functions can be bestfit with an equation. The equations used are presented in the following sections along with verification information on the performance of each equation. A leastsquared regression technique is used to determine the parameters for a selected fitting equation.
The Display Consolidation Options checkbox can be selected to show consolidation options.
