New Standard On Saturated Hydraulic Conductivity Published
April 27, 2017

The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) has recently announced that Calculation of the Saturated Hydraulic Conductivity of Fine-Grained Soils, Standard ANSI/ASCE/EWRI 65-17, provides guidelines for calculating saturated hydraulic conductivity (Ksat), permeability, and porosity of fine-grained soils. Standard ASCE 65-17 is the fourth in a series that enhances the probabilistic characterization and understanding of the behavior of a key groundwater parameter, the saturated hydraulic conductivity.

This standard’s methodology can be applied to refine or improve calculations of land subsidence, groundwater flow prediction, and transport of dissolved solutes moving in groundwater. The methodology in this standard is limited to fine-grained, compressible, inorganic soils.

Environmental engineers, water resources engineers, and anyone who uses hydraulics in engineering will find this a primary reference tool.
