Abstract/Summary The water retention curves of three sand fractions and 12 continuous and gap-graded 2-component sand mixtures were measured. Due to the unexpectedly long equalization times, the tests (involving 11 suction steps) lasted longer than two years. In this paper, two methods for predicting the water retention properties are considered which use the grain size distribution as primary input. In particular, the data are used to validate a pedo-transfer model which is based on the pore size distribution of a soil.
