Description/Abstract

The van Schilfgaarde transient watertable model is shown to be applicable to the drainage of heavy clay soils in the English context. The model is calibrated against a site in Leicestershire, and then subjected to 10 years' climatic record representative of contrasting areas in Bedfordshire and Devon. In both cases, the clear superiority of mole drains over drains alone at 20 m spacing is demonstrated.
