Selected Bibliography on Permeability and Capillarity Testing of Rock and Soil Materials


This bibliography was prepared as a result of a cooperative study by the U.S. Geological Survey and the California Department of Water Resources to facilitate additional study of the testing methods discussed during the ASTM “Symposium on Permeability and Capillarity Testing for Rocks and Soils.” References selected were representative of a number of disciplines—soil engineering, petroleum geology, hydrology, and soil physics, for example. for reader convenience, the references are listed alphabetically under the heading of permeability or capillarity, indicating the main subject of the reference. The bibliography should not be considered representative of all material that has been written on either of these two subjects. However, the authors have attempted to present a list sufficiently representative so readers can pursue the subjects of permeability and capillarity in greater detail.
