What are different correlations of Permeability with respect to Soil & Rocks?


I need different correlations of Permeability ''K'' with other Index properties & Engineering properties etc.

I wrote a publication "Guidelines for Performing Investigations of Miscellaneous Structures" in 2004 for the U S Bureau of Reclamation.  It has about 6 or 7 charts from various publications where K may be estimated from index properties.  If you would like a free copy send me a message and I'll e-mail it to you.  The publication was made for small structures with little budget for investigations.

A PDF print of soil texture permeability correlations that I've compiled since 2012 is emailed. 

Factors, not included in grain size distribution, that affect permeability, are density - compaction or over consolidation. Not everyone accepts these correlations, but, when lacking better information, they supply a starting point.
