1 SCOPE This Standard sets out the method for the determination of coefficient of permeability of a soil in a flexible wall permeameter or triaxial cell with percolation under constant head conditions. The Standard includes testing of both remoulded and undisturbed specimens of soil. 2 REFERENCED DOCUMENTS Standard: AS 1152 1289 1289.1 1289.2.1.1 1289.5.1.1 1289.5.2.1 1289.5.5.1 The following documents are referred to in this

Specification for test sieves Methods of testing soils for engineering purposes Method 1: Preparation of disturbed soil samples for testing Method 2.1.1: Soil moisture content tests—Determination of the moisture content of a soil—Oven drying method (standard method) Method 5.1.1: Soil compaction and density tests —Determination of the dry density/moisture content relation of a soil using standard compactive effort Method 5.2.1: Soil compaction and density tests —Determination of the dry density/moisture content relation of a soil using modified compactive effort Method 5.5.1: Soil compaction and density tests —Determination of the minimum and maximum dry density of a cohesionless material — Standard method Test method for measurement of hydraulic conductivity of saturated porous materials using a flexible wall permeameter

DEFINITIONS

3.1 Laboratory density ratio—the ratio of the dry density of the compacted specimen to the maximum dry density of the material as determined by AS 1289.5.1.1, or AS 1289.5.2.1 or AS 1289.5.5.1, as applicable, expressed as a percentage. 3.2 Laboratory moisture ratio—the ratio of the moisture content of the compacted specimen to the optimum moisture content of the material as determined by AS 1289.5.1.1 or AS 1289.5.2.1, as applicable, expressed as a percentage.
