Introduction—The terms “permeability” and “conductivity” are used to indicate the capacity of soils to transmit water. To designate this capacity quantitatively for steady flow it is, of course, essential to specify the area through which flow occurs, the time, the force causing flow, the volume or the mass of flow, and to select appropriate units. Slichter used the square foot as the area-unit, the minute as the time-unit, and implicitly the force corresponding to unit hydraulic gradient as… CONTINUE READING
