CALCULATION:
K= A where, K= Soil permeability
FT A= Cross sectional area of borehole
F= Intake Factor (refer to BS5930:1999, Fig. 6, pg. 50, case (d))
A= 0.02 m2 2πL
loge[(L/D)+(1+(L/D)2)1/2]
F= 2.82 L= Testing depth - Casing depth = 2.23m
D= Diameter of borehole
T= 12.0 min
Therefore, K= 7.58E-06 m/s
