Falling Head Permeability Apparatus
Description of Falling Head Permeability Apparatus
The soil permeability is a very important factor to study the behavior of soil in its natural condition with respect to water flow. The falling head method is particularly suitable for fine-grained soils such as clay-like or silty soils in the range of 1x10-2 to 1x10-6 cm/s.
The test is performed with a permeability cell which has to be connected to a manometer stand. During the test the cell is placed in a soaking tank fit with overflow tube and the saturation is verified with the Vacuum control panel. As an option the apparatus can be completed with a suitable de-airing tank and De-airing system
