Abstract

The measurement of the saturated water permeability of concrete is of great interest, but with the rapid improvements in properties of high performance concretes, the most common problem is the ability and accuracy of measuring the very small flow volumes. A high pressure triaxial cell with improved measurement sensitivity, capable of continuously measuring saturated water permeability of the order of < 10-15 m/s, is presented in this paper.
