Abstract

Hydraulic conductivity and effective porosity values for the confined sandy loam aquifer of the Montalto Uffugo (Italy) test fieldwere obtained by laboratory and field measurements; the first ones were carried out on undisturbed soil samples and the othersby slug and aquifer tests. A direct simple-scaling analysis was performed for the whole range of measurement and a comparisonamong the different types of fractal models describing the scale behavior was made. Some indications about the largest pore size toutilize in the fractalmodels were given.The results obtained for a sandy loamsoil show that it is possible to obtain global indicationson the behavior of the hydraulic conductivity versus the porosity utilizing a simple scaling relation and a fractal model in coupledmanner
