Field Testing and Calibration of the Vertical and Horizontal Insitu Permeameter

The objectives of this project are: (1) to develop simple but consistent equations for estimating hydraulic permeability from VIP/VAHIP injection test results; and (2) to perform field testing of VIP/VAHIP probes at multiple sites for validation and, if necessary, empirical correction of VIP/VAHIP permeability estimates versus existing Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) permeability measurements from borehold methods.
