Permeameters for Permeability Testing
Soil permeability, in terms of a permeability coefficient (k), measures a soil’s ability to allow water to pass through it. Soils are permeable materials due to their grain structure and the existence of interconnected voids. A good knowledge of soil permeability is important for both civil engineering and agricultural purposes. more »
