Abstract

The objective of this work is to establish a method of determining the effective thermal diffusivity of a water-soil porous medium system. In comparing the results for the three types of soil, it is noted that the times to reach steady state is about the same for the commercial gravel and the Hallandale fine sand. The Plantation muck took the longest to reach steady state. This is physically realistic as one would expect the effective thermal diffusivity of the Plantation muck to have the least value of the three.
