Abstract: The ability to provide a quick estimate of the permeability value to be expected in laboratory testing (of field samples) would help to predict potential problems in meeting the permeability standards imposed on compacted clay liners. We present some preliminary results that indicate the potential of artificial neural networks as a practical engineering tool for estimation and prediction of expected field permeability.
