Description: Technical Memorandum
From the Introduction: The Soil Mechanics Fact Finding Survey was authorized by the Chief of Engineers on November 29, 1939, and the U.S. Waterways Experiment station was designated as the agency to carry out the survey. It is the purpose of the survey to review the activities and accomplishments of the Engineer Department in the various phases of soil mechanics, and to present recommendations for future departmental investigations based upon this review. The purpose of this report is to present in concise form a review of the available methods for determining the coefficient of permeability and to summarize briefly the methods used by various agencies of the Department. In conjunction with this review, comparisons between coefficients of permeability normal to and those parallel to stratification have been collected and these are presented herein.
