The process, justified by theory and physical modeling, enables to establish dependence of poroperm properties of loose geomaterials versus fluid pressure and stresses. The laboratory unit designed and manufactured by researchers, comprises a measurement cell filled with a loose material, a hydraulic press, and a recorder of pressure, flow rate, and stress m, stepwise applied to the cell. At each loading stage the permeability test was carried out at different input gas pressures pn. The stationary measured flowrate data Qmn and the back analysis were employed to establish the empirical permeabilityeffective stress dependence, followed with approximation by two-parameter exponential function. The measurement cell was vacuumized at fixed m the cell was connected to a vessel, filled with air of a preset mass. Porosity m was calculated based on the equilibrium pressure gained in cellvessel system. The experiments performed with the medium-grained sand revealed that the exponent factor characterizing the relationship between permeability and effective stress is something like 0.02-1; the permeabilityporosity relation can be described by a power function; thereto, KozenyCarman equation is fulfilled with good precision as well.
