Civil Engineering - Water Resources Engineering - Discussion


Pick up the correct statement from the following :

[A]. When rainfall rate exceeds the infiltration capacity, the water enters the soil at full capacity rate
[B]. When rainfall rate is less than the infiltration capacity, the infiltration rate is approximately equal to the rainfall rate
[C]. The actual infiltration rate at any time may be equal to or less than the infiltration capacity
[D]. The actual prevailing rate of infiltration of water in the soil at any time, is known as infiltration rate
[E]. All the above.

Answer: Option E

Option A is wrong because after 100% saturation i.e.full infiltration capacity. How could water enter the soil?

Navneet said: (May 29, 2018)  
Yeah, A must be wrong.

Subhash Kumar said: (Sep 19, 2018)  
The answe should be D.

Saqib said: (Sep 22, 2019)  
A is the right answer because after rainfall exceeds the infiltration capacity, water enters with full saturation.

Vijay Kumar said: (Dec 5, 2019)  
Infiltration capacity is nothing but MAXIMUM INFILTRATION RATE.

What option A is saying is correct.

So when the Rainfall rate is more than the Max Infiltration rate it's obvious that the water will enter at full capacity rate.

No, it will start to be a runoff.
