The Jodhpur Permeameter is fabricated according
to the design developed at the Soil Engineering Laboratory, Faculty
of Engineering, Universiy of Jodhpur by Professor Alam Singh.
The apparatus is simple, sturdy and truly versatile and can be
used for studying the permeability characteristics of all types
of soil samples under different conditions in the laboratory as
well as in the field. Both falling head and constant head test
can be performed. Both remoulded and undisturbed specimens can
