for Permeability Testing


Soil permeability, in terms of a permeability coefficient (k), measures a soil’s ability to allow water to pass through it. Soils are permeable materials due to their grain structure and the existence of interconnected voids. A good knowledge of soil permeability is important for both civil engineering and agricultural purposes. Although determining a sample’s permeability can require many steps, the process can often be simplified with the proper tools.

Humboldt's Soil Permeameters are used to determine the coefficient of permeability in both constant head and falling head test methods.
