Taylor (1948) Estimation

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewReturn to Top Next page












The Taylor Estimation method allows the user to estimate the relationship between permeability and void ratio by Taylor (1948). A description of the theory related to this method can be found in the SVSOILS Theory Manual.


Taylor Coefficient: The Taylor Coefficient is the coefficient used by Taylor (1948) to estimate hydraulic conductivity at various void ratios.


Taylor Predicted: The Taylor Predicted field indicates whether the fitted algorithm has been successfully executed on the current data.


Error: The Error is the difference between the fitted results and the laboratory values in terms of R2.
