IMPORTANCE OF PERMABILITY IN THE SEDIMENTATION CONSOLIDATION PROCESS

A. Alexis, P. Thomas

Abstract


This paper first presents a literature review of permeability laws. A link between hydraulics and geotechnics formulations is pointed out. Second, reduced permeability expressions are discussed from experimental data available in literature. An extented exponential expression of reduced permeabilty is proposed.
