Sand and Water (but no beach?!)

Dr. Stonedahl’s group, aka “Team Caleb” is investigating the flow of water through a grid of sands. They checked in with this report:

adding sand to permeameter

We put together a constant head permeameter to measure the permeability of sands, so that we can select two good sands to use in our experiments.

We have worked with TProGS, NetLogo, and MATLAB to model what we plan to do with the apparatus. We are progressing on integrating the codes and getting them closer to matching our system.

This group has their own blog you can follow at

And now for a little fun–it’s volleyball time for the whole USRI group!
