Abstract

In this study a new model for the relationship of normalized volumetric water content and relative permittivity relationship have been proposed. Electrical Capacitance Volume Tomography (ECVT) was applied to image soil water content during infiltration of water in a soil column based on the proposed model. Granular and silty sand were used as soil material in the experiments. The principle of normalization in measurements of permittivity in ECVT is required to determine normalized volumetric soil water content. This technique utilizes the distribution of normalized relative permittivity in the voxel to analyze the volume of each voxel that contains of water. The result showed that the normalized volumetric water content can be seen in each layer during soil water infiltration in the soil column.
