## Typical Values of Permeability for Different Soils

The permeability or coefficient of permeability can be defined as the rate of flow of water through a unit cross-sectional area of the soil under a unit hydraulic gradient at a temperature of $10^{\circ}$C. Typical values of permeability or coefficient of permeability for different soils are as follows:
