LABORATORY DETERMINATION OF RADIAL PERMEABILITY OF SOILS

A NEW APPARATUS DESIGNED AND FABRICATED AT INDIAN INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY, KANPUR, TO DETERMINE THE RADIAL PERMEABILITY OF SOILS IS DESCRIBED. THE GOVERNING EQUATIONS FOR THE RADIAL COEFFICIENT OF PERMEABILITY BY CONSTANT HEAD AND VARIABLE HEAD METHODS ARE DERIVED. THE RESULTS OF RADIAL PERMEABILITY TEST ON A COMPACTED SOIL SAMPLE BY CONSTANT AND VARIABLE HEAD METHODS ARE PRESENTED. THE VALUES ARE VERY NEARLY IDENTICAL BY THE TWO METHODS. FOR PURPOSES OF COMPARISON THE RESULTS OF VERTICAL PERMEABILITY TESTS ON THE SAME SOIL ARE ALSO INCLUDED. /AUTHOR/
