Specifying Permittivity in Geotextiles – The Geotextile Blog
Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. Next Post Next Subgrade Thickness. In the constant head test, a head of 50 mm water is maintained on the geotextile throughout the test. Competent statistical assistance qstm recommended for the f4491 of bias.
Summary Permittivity is the volumetric flow through a cross section of material. If a bias is found, either its cause must be found and corrected, or the purchaser and the supplier must agree to interpret future test results in light of the known bias.
It is also important to note that nominal thickness is just that: All of these factors make permeability an unreliable property for geotextiles. As such, permeability is an unreliable index test axtm offers little understanding in how a geotextile will function in situ or how one geotextile will perform compared to another. As a specifier, the most important point is to understand is that permeability as a geotextile property is not supported by the geosynthetic industry.
By multiplying permittivity times the nominal thickness of the geotextile, as determined by Test Method D axtm, the nominal coefficient of permeability is obtained. Included are three procedures: Permeability soil coefficients are well established and used in various calculations such as structural coefficient for subgrades.
The nominal thickness is used as it is difficult to evaluate the pressure on the geotextile during the test, thereby making it difficult to determine the thickness of the fabric under these test conditions. History Permeability soil coefficients d491 well established and used in various calculations such as structural coefficient for subgrades.
The permittivity may be measured either in a constant head or falling head test, although constant head testing is more common due to the high flow rates through geotextiles which makes it difficult to obtain readings of head change versus time in the falling head test. Permittivity is the volumetric flow through a cross section of material.

The average results from the two laboratories should be compared using Student’s t-test for unpaired data and an acceptable probability level chosen by the two parties before the start of testing.
Permeability is the advancement of d441 water in conjunction with thickness. In many asym, it is more significant to evaluate the quantity of water that would pass through a geotextile under a given head over a particular cross-sectional area; this is expressed as permittivity. The following will hopefully clarify the differences and underscore why specifying permeability is very problematic.
At least, it would seem to offer an index test to compare one geotextile to another. The flow rate of water through the geotextile needs to be slow enough to obtain accurate readings.

In the falling head test, a column of water is allowed to flow through the geotextile and a reading of head change versus time is taken. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the d4419.
Geotextile thicknesses vary and are easily impacted by packaging, shipping and load. As a minimum, the two parties should take a group of test specimens that axtm as homogeneous as possible and that are from a lot of material of the type in question.

The test specimens should then be randomly assigned in numbers to each laboratory for testing. The quantity of flow is measured versus time. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

There is much confusion surrounding permittivity and permeability relating to geotextiles.
