SOME CAPILLARY PHENOMENA IN SANDY MATERIALS

THE STUDY OF THE PHYSICAL PRINCIPLES ON WHICH THE ACCUMULATION OF MOISTURE UNDER PAVEMENT IS BASED IS AN IMPORTANT ENGINEERING PROBLEM. EMPHASIS IS LAID ON THE ITEMS NOT SUFFICIENTLY CLARIFIED IN THE HIGHWAY AND RUNWAY LITERATURE SUCH AS: (1) HORIZONTAL CAPILLARITY, AS IN THE CASE OF MOVEMENT OF MOISTURE FROM THE EDGES OF A PAVEMENT TOWARD ITS CENTER; AND (2) THE BOUNDARY EFFECT WHEN THE MOVING MOISTURE REACHES AN OUTFLOW FACE OR OBSTACLE HANDICAPPING ITS FURTHER MOVEMENT. WATER VAPOR CONDENSATION IS ALSO CONSIDERED. /AUTHOR/
