Accurate measurement of Permeability is critical for fluid flow modeling in porous media. Various experimental methods have been devised that measure permeability as a porous material property. These experiments are based most commonly on Darcy’s law. Liquid flow and gas flow methods of permeability measurement for in-plane and transverse directions are detailed. Issues related to these methods are discussed. Some associated permeability models are discussed. Alternative methods of permeability determination based on cross transport phenomenon are presented.
