Title: A Simple Test For Water Permeability Of Concrete

Author(s): George Wiley and D. C. Coulson

Object of studies and tests described was: to develop a simple, inexpensive method for determining permeability; to prove the method by determining the effect of variables which have been adequately studied previously; to investigate the effects of cement fineness on permeability; and to investigate the effect on permeability of using a cement ground with a dispersing agent (TDA). Tests and data indicate effect on permeability of water-cement ratio, cement fineness, curing conditions, and dispersing agents.
