How is the permeability of concrete determined?

Q. How is the permeability of concrete determined?

 

A. With difficulty and usually indirectly, indications of the permeability of concrete are determined by air and water permeability tests (ACI 228.2R); or by the ponding test (ASTM C1543); or by the rapid chloride penetration test (ASTM C1202).
