Normalized water content ( effective saturation van Genuchten)

Description

In soil mechanics and petroleum engineering, water content or soil moisture content is the quantity of water contained in the soil. The normalized water content (or effective saturation Se) is depended on the volumetric water content, the residual water content and the saturated water content (equivalent to porosity).
