In-Plane Permeability Test Apparatus
EKE 13111 Overhead Tank
EKE 24801 Loading unit, Dead weight Type 300 kPa capacity
This test is necessary for drainage application. The permeameters can be of parallel flow or radial flow type. In either case, flow occurs along the plane of the permeameters. In the apparatus, flow occurs radially outwards, from a central hole to the periphery of a circular specimen. The In-plane permeability is known as transmissivity which is defined as the volumetric rate of flow per unit width of geotextile and unit hydraulic head.
Specimen diameter is 100 mm 100 lts. capacity
