Specific Yield and Retention Specific yield S y : the ratio of the volume of water yielded, from soil or rock by gravity drainage after being saturated, to the total volume of the soil or rock (Meinzer, 1923) Specific retention S r : the ratio of the volume f water a soil or rock will retain after of water a soil or rock will retain after saturation against the force of gravity to the tal volume total volume Water can be retained as a film on the surface f grains or held in small openings by of grains or held in small openings by molecular attraction 4

Calculation Example: Question Question : After a soil sample is drained by gravity with a water mass of 20 g , the weight of the soil sample is 85 g . Then the sample is oven-dried, and the sample weighs 80 g . The ulk density of the wet soil is 65 g/cm 3 and bulk density of the wet soil is 1.65 g/cm , and the density of water is 1 g/cm 3 . Calculate the specific yield, specific retention, and porosity of the sample. 7
