Unformatted text preview: indicate a reducing permeability). This is because as the downward flowrate is increased the sample is compacted (evidenced by the reducing sample height), decreasing both the void ratio and the permeability. The maximum permeability is with the sample in its loosest state, with the sample height z = 180 mm and the flowrate q = 2000 mm 3 /sec. Then k = q/Ai = 2000 mm 3 /sec (8000 mm 2 0.157) k ~ 1.6 mm/s The minimum permeability is with the sample in its densest state, with the sample height z = 160 mm and the flowrate q = 6000 mm 3 /sec. Then k = q/Ai = 6000 mm 3 /sec (8000 mm 2 0.625) k ~ 1.2 mm/s...
