Abstract/Contents:"As a sequel to the investigation described in Part I of this paper (VAN WIJYK 1980), this article deals with the influences of tile drainage and the characteristics of the drainage layer on the soil water conditions of the top layer of grass sportsfields. The investigation was carried out with the same electronic analog, and with some of the same top layers and subsoils, as mentioned in Part I. The main effect of tile drainage consists of shortening the duration of wet soil conditions. An increase in drain depth is much more effective in controlling the soil water conditions in the top layer than an increase in drain intensity to give higher drain discharge by means of narrower drain spacings at shallower drain depths. The effect of tile drainage depends strongly on the conductivity of the subsoil. Soils with bad permeability, needing drainage the most, react the least to it. The influence of a drainage layer is greatest when such a layer consists of coarse textured sand (0.6-1.0 mm), covered by a sufficiently compacted sandy top layer with a low organic matter content. A drainage layer thickness of 30 cm seems to be adequate. Construction of a drainage layer need only be considered as an alternative for the usual construction, i.e. a sandy top layer directly placed on a subsoil, when the subsoil is nearly impermeable."
