Hydraulic conductivity is an important geotechnical engineering property as it is linked to the performance of many geo-structures. This study used a recently compiled granular soil database (CG/KSAT/7/1278) to evaluate the best fit probability density functions for important parameters in the database. The Loglogistic function was found to be the best-fit probability density function for the parameters from CG/KSAT/7/1278 investigated in this paper. The grading entropy parameters (un-normalised) were used to develop a chart that highlights trends from the effect of changes of the gradation parameters on the estimated soil permeability.
