Sorptivity The sorptivity is widely used in characterizing soils and porous construction materials such as brick, stone and concrete.
Sorptivity Calculation of the true sorptivity required numerical iterative procedures dependent on soil water content and diffusivity.
Sorptivity John R. Philip (1969) showed that sorptivity can be determined from horizontal infiltration where water flow is mostly controlled by capillary absorption:
Sorptivity According to C Hall and W D Hoff, the sorptivity "expresses the tendency of a material to absorb and transmit water and other liquids by capillarity."
Sorptivity where the sorptivity S is defined (when a sharp wetting front L exists) as:
Sorptivity In 1957 John Philip introduced the term sorptivity and defined it as "a measure of the capacity of the medium to absorb or desorb liquid by capillarity".
Sorptivity where "S" is sorptivity and "I" is the cumulative infiltration (i.e. distance) at time "t". Its associated SI unit is m·s.
Sorptivity For vertical infiltration, Philip's solution is adapted using a parameter A. This results in the following equations, which are valid for short times:
Capillary action Some authors use the quantity "S/f" as the sorptivity.
Capillary action Sorptivity is a relevant property of building materials, because it affects the amount of rising dampness. Some values for the sorptivity of building materials are in the table below.
