Studies on Soil Physics: Part II — The Permeability of an Ideal Soil to Air and Water

Published online by Cambridge University Press:  27 March 2009

Extract

§ 1. In Part I. (vol. IV. pp. 1—24) it was shown that the intrinsic permeability of a soil when measured with water was less than when measured with air as the experimental fluid, and that the ratio of the two values varied with the amount of colloidal matter present. It was desirable to determine accurately whether the values would be identical for soils composed of pure sand or other uniform and non-colloidal particles.

page 27 note 1 It was pointed out in Part I. of these researches (loc. cit. §§ 9, 32) that the behaviour with water is a most important property of the soil; for whereas with clean sands the ratio will be but slightly greater than unity, the amount of colloidal matter present will cause a corresponding increase in its magnitude.
