Output of Brook-Corey

Post by Srilert » Mon Dec 03, 2007 11:50 am

Dear Sir,
I wondered when I used RETC to estimate retention parameters using Brook-Corey model. I found outputs are ThetaR ThetaS, Alpha, n which are Van Genuchen model not Brook-Corey.
How I get the parameters of Brook-Corey model.
Could anyone suggest this ?
Looking forward for your answers.

Best regards,

alpha equals 1/(air entry value), and n is the pore-size distribution index in the BC equation.
