Abstract

It is derived an approximate analytical solution of one-dimensional Richards' equation (RE) with Brooks-Corey model in this paper. The approach is based on the introduction of Boltzmann transformation and construction of an intermediate variable for approximation. In the end, one illustration is given to confirm the accuracy of present solution.
