Test Method Title

Standard Test Methods for Measurement of Hydraulic Conductivity of Saturated Porous Materials Using a Flexible Wall Permeameter

Reference Number

ASTM D5084

Material

Geosynthetic Clay Liner

Test Property

Permeability, Flow Rate, Hydraulic conductivity

Description of Test

This test method covers laboratory measurement of the hydraulic conductivity (also referred to as coefficient of permeability) of GCL with a flexible wall permeameter. The calculations in this test method are primarily used in conjunction with ASTM D5887 Index Flux.
