Abstract: In this lab, we had performed two experiments for testing the permeability of different soils. Therefore, we performed a permeability test for the granular soil using the Constant Head Method. In addition, we also performed the permeability test again but for the fine- grained soil using the Falling Head Method. We also preformed the percolation test to determine the rate at which percolation occurs in the soil. Objectives: 1- To determine the constant K, using the constant head method. 2- To determine the constant K, using the falling head method. 3- To find out the percolation rate in the soil.
