## Capillarity Permeability Test – To Determine the Coefficient of Permeability(K) of Soil

In this article, we are going to discuss about the capillarity permeability test or the horizontal capillarity test, which is another one method used for determining the coefficient of permeability as well as the value of capillarity height of the soil sample.
