    Abstract

    The object of this paper is to describe the design and operation of an apparatus for determining the coefficient of permeability of granular soils, utilizing air as the percolating fluid, under so-called falling-head conditions. Also, the results of a few typical tests are presented, and comparisons made with the results obtained using water as the test fluid.
