    Abstract

    This paper describes the use of a new item of laboratory equipment, a two-way permeameter for determination of the degree of permeability anisotropy of compacted or undisturbed samples of soil. The test is performed on a single sample of soil. The relevant theoretical solutions for seepage flow through the permeameter have been provided, based on exact solutions and manual sketching of flow nets.
