The In-plane water transmissivity tester is used for determining the flow rate per unit width within the manufactured plane of geosynthetics inder varying normal compressive stresses and a constant head. The test is intended primarily as an index test but can be used also as a performance test when the hydraulic gradients and specimen contact surfaces are selected by the user to model anticipated field conditions.
The flow rate per unit width is determined by measuring the quantity of water that passes through a test specimen in a specific time interval under a specific normal stress and a specific hydraulic gradient. The hydraulic gradient(s) and specimen contact surfaces are selected by the user either as an index test or as a performance test to model a given set of field parameters as closely as possible. Measurements may be repeated under increasing normal stresses selected by the user.
