Fig. 6 Flow lines and equipotentials. 12 it is apparent that the flow lines and the equipotentials intersect each other at right angles. Consider, now, two flow lines ψ1 and (ψ1 + ∆ψ ) separated by the distance ∆n. The flow lines are intersected orthogonally by two equipotentials φ1 and (φ1 + ∆φ ) separated by the distance ∆s as shown in Fig. 6. The directions s and n are inclined at angle α to the x and z axes respectively.

Sheepsfoot rollers are most suitable for fine soils, 33 34 BASIC CHARACTERISTICS OF SOILS both plastic and non-plastic, especially at water contents dry of optimum. They are also suitable for coarse soils with more than 20% of fines. The action of the feet causes significant mixing of the soil, improving its degree of homogeneity, and will break up lumps of stiff material. Due to the penetration of the feet, excellent bonding is produced between successive soil layers, an important requirement for water-retaining earthworks.
