PERMEABILITY COEFFICIENT USING A NEW PLASTIC DEVICE

THE VALUE OF THE COEFFICIENT OF PERMEABILITY OF SEVERAL GRANULAR MATERIALS DETERMINED WITH THE WIDELY USED METAL COMPACTION MOLD FROM THE STANDARD COMPACTION TEST IS COMPARED TO A PLASTIC DEVICE DEVELOPED BY THE AUTHOR. IN GENERAL, THE PLASTIC DEVICE PROVIDES VALUES 2 TO 9 TIMES LARGER THAN DOES THE METAL MOLD. IF THE COEFFICIENT OF PERMEABILITY, K, OF THE POROUS STONE USED IN THE METAL MOLD IS SEPARATELY DETERMINED AND K-VALUES ADJUSTED FOR A TWO-LAYER SYSTEM, THE PLASTIC MOLD PROVIDES VALUES ABOUT 2 TO 3 TIMES LARGER.
