FAQ

What is Degree of Saturation of Soil?
The Degree of Saturation of Soil formula is defined as the ratio, expressed as percentage, of the volume of free water contained in a sample to its total volume of voids and is represented as S=((w*Gs)/e) or degree of saturation=((Water content*Specific gravity of the soil)/void ratio). The water content w of a soil sample represents the weight of free water contained in the sample expressed as a percentage of its dry weight, Specific gravity of the soil is an important property of soil being related to density and Void ratio is the ratio of the volume of voids to the volume of solids.
How to calculate Degree of Saturation of Soil?
The Degree of Saturation of Soil formula is defined as the ratio, expressed as percentage, of the volume of free water contained in a sample to its total volume of voids is calculated using degree of saturation=((Water content*Specific gravity of the soil)/void ratio). To calculate Degree of Saturation of Soil, you need Water content (w), Specific gravity of the soil (Gs) and void ratio (e). With our tool, you need to enter the respective value for Water content, Specific gravity of the soil and void ratio and hit the calculate button. You can also select the units (if any) for Input(s) and the Output as well.
How many ways are there to calculate degree of saturation?
In this formula, degree of saturation uses Water content, Specific gravity of the soil and void ratio. We can use 2 other way(s) to calculate the same, which is/are as follows -
  • degree of saturation=volume of water/volume of voids
  • degree of saturation=((Dry unit weight of soil/Unit weight of water)*((1/Specific gravity of the soil)+Water content))
