The SIMDualKc model input data also included the non-observed (standard) parameters such as the basal crop coefficient ([K.sub.cb]), depletion fraction for no stress (p), as well as parameters that characterize soil water evaporation, such as total evaporable water (TEW), readily evaporable water (REW), thickness of the evaporation soil layer ([Z.sub.e]), and parameters for estimating deep percolation ([a.sub.D] and [b.sub.D]).
In the FAGC samples, an endothermic peak was observed between 50[degrees]C and 70[degrees]C, which was attributed to the loss of evaporable water in the sample, and the water was combined in the aluminosilicates [30].
Evaporable water was not observed inside the plastic bags; however, most of the samples showed sweating on the top face of the specimen, figure 5.
Rapid reduction in weight up to 300[degrees]C was mainly due to dehydration of free evaporable water in the specimen.
In the light of Kelvin's law, when the humidity in the concrete begins to decrease, the evaporable water and the gaseous water are in the thermodynamic balance.
