This study was conducted to develop the SWCC estimation equation using scaling technique, and to investigate relative sensitivity of the SWCC according to the soil water tension, for the four kinds of soil texture such as Sand [S], Sandy Loam [SL], Loam [L] and Clay Loam [CL]. The SWCC estimation equation of scale factor [] (Eq. 1) was developed based on the log function (Eq. 2) and exponential function (Eq. 3). ${\Theta}sc
