This paper aims to highlight the relationship between soil particles morphological (shape, size and surface area) and hydraulic properties (hydraulic conductivity - saturated and unsaturated and soil suction). Determination of morphological characteristics of soil particles was achieved by: a) size analysis and b) SEM microscopic analysis type. Determination of soil hydraulic properties was performed by laboratory methods for hydraulic conductivity was used the constant-head method (ks) and the falling head method (kθ), suction was determined using experimental plant which comprises sandbox, sand/kaolin box and pressure membrane apparatus.
