Figure 3.12 The sum of the Simpson terms in column C is calculated in cell C18. The integral of K(h) is calculated in cell C19 by multiplying the sum by 10/3 (h/3) (see Equation 3.27). In cell C20, λc is calculated by dividing the integral by the difference between Ks and K(-100) (see Equation 3.25). 0 -10 -20 Depth (cm) -30 -40 i = 0.5 cm/d i = 1.5 cm/d -50 -60 -70 -80 -90 -100 -40 -30 -20 -10 0 Pressure Head (cm) Figure 3.13 Distribution of h as a function of z for a steady low infiltration rate (0.5 cm d -1) and a high infiltration rate (1.5 cm d-1) based on Equation 3.31 (adapted from Jury and Horton, 2004).

Water is ponded to a depth of 0.1 cm at the surface and there are tile drains at a depth of 250 cm (pressure head equals zero).
