Abstract

The most important of the hydrophysical properties is the water retention capacity of the soil. This property is formulated as a relationship between the volumetric moisture of the soil and the capillary pressure of soil moisture. Three hysteresis models of soil water-retention capacity are presented. The parameters were identified by point approximation of experimental data (from an authoritative literary source) on the main (boundary) drying and wetting branches of the soil «2003 Silt of Nave-Yaar» using the «SoilHysteresis-v.1.0» computer program developed by the authors. Applying the condition of equality of the values of the exponential parameter for the branches of draining and moistening eliminates the undesirable (methodical) «pump effect». A comparative analysis of hysteresis models based on the identification of significant differences between the errors of the point approximation of the experimental data by the Williams-Kloot test. The advantages of models in which an additional additive parameter
