A constant-head permeameter has a diameter of 2.5 cm. A 5.0 cm soil sample with the same cross-sectional area is place in the permeameter. When a head difference of 5 cm is applied between the inlet and outlet ports, the permeameter discharges 50 cm3 of water in 90 s.

(a) Calculate the hydraulic conductivity of the soil in m/s and in ft/day. (b) What is the intrinsic permeability of the soil at 20 ◦C?

(c) What would be the soil’s hydraulic conductivity for salt water with a density of 1055 kg/m3 and a dynamic viscosity of 1.15 × 10−3 N · s/m2 ?

    The figure below shows the soil profile conditions below a 5-m deep pond. Water is seeping directly downward under steady-state conditions through the clay layer into underlying gravel. Assume the elevation datum at the top of the gravel layer and that the hydrostatic ground water table is also found in the top of the gravel and its position does not change with time or amount of flow. For these flow conditions, calculate the following: a. b. c. d. e. f....
