Jul 02, 1991  a slight increase in permeability, but it was still relatively low. We received a NJFHP from the FHWA, which significantly helped us to compare the permeability of the different materials. The NJFHP provided us with a quick and consistent way to compare the permeability and make a decision about the gradation for the rest of the project.

Therefore, at the same air void level, mixes having larger nominal maximum aggregate sizes have more potential for high permeability than mixes of smaller nominal maximum aggregate sizes. Critical density values for different nominal maximum aggregate sizes are: 9.5 mm (0.375 inch) NMAS ˜ 7.5 – 8.0 percent air voids (92.0 – 92.5 percent TMD).

Permeable bases help solve pavement drainage problems

The base material can be untreated or treated. An unt r e a t e d permeable base contains in-termediate-sized a g g r e g a t e for stability. A treated per-meable base, on the other hand, uses a binding agent for stability. The b i n d i n g agent allows the use of l a r ger aggregate, which re-sults in a more open base with higher permeability.

Permeability (electromagnetism) - Wikipedia

Explanation. In electromagnetism, the auxiliary magnetic field H represents how a magnetic field B influences the organization of magnetic dipoles in a given medium, including dipole migration and magnetic dipole reorientation. Its relation to permeability is = where the permeability, μ, is a scalar if the medium is isotropic or a second rank tensor for an anisotropic medium.
