The Ac Impedance Characteristics of Soil with Different Water Content


Article Preview

As an important and mature technology of researching material properties, ac impedance spectroscopy has successfully applied in many discipline except for soil research. Based on the experiments using TH2828A wide frequency LCR meter (from 50 to 106 Hz), the ac impedance characteristics with different water content of soil had been discussed. The results fully illustrate that the ac impedance is one of the basic property of soil,and the value of ac impedance parameter can be reflected the water content quantitatively. when using the fixed frequency to measure ac impedance of soil, it is most suitable as the frequency equals 104 Hz.The measure method of ac impedance have no effect to physical properties and internal structure of soil.
