AbstractThe test site was part of an extensive study related to ground movements and associated distresses caused to underground water mains. A parametric study was performed to evaluate the effects of net radiation, wind speed, precipitation, soil properties and initial suction conditions on the actual evaporation, net infiltration, water content, soil suction and depth of suction change in the soil profile for a period from 1 November 2005 to 31 October 2006.
