Applied Research Using a Transparent Material with Hydraulic Properties Similar to Soil

An innovative material, transparent soil, was used to study flow from a prefabricated vertical drain (PVD). Transparent soil is a mixture of mineral oil, solvent, and amorphous silica. Before using the material to study PVD flow patterns, testing was completed to verify previously published values f...
