ANALYTICAL CALCULATION OF WATER RETENTION CAPACITY, SPECIFIC FOR FORESTRY TERRACES SITUATED ON SLOPE DEGRADED LANDS

C. Todosoiu, Elena Achim, I. Ganea-Christu

Abstract


Terracing slopes necessitate making of "steps" along level lines, which ensures the processing of land on a certain percentage of the total area. The main constructive feature of terraced is the platform, namely width and counterslopes. Platform terraces are arranged with counterslopes, which ensures conditions for accumulation of rainwater and slows surface leaks, favoring the development of woody vegetation (trees, shrubs, fruit trees, vines) and fixes the mobilized soil by terracing action.
Given the above, it raises the question of determining the water volume that canaccumulate depending on the width and terrace contraslope tilt.
