Abstract: In this second international permeability benchmark, the in-plane permeability values of a carbon fabric
were studied by twelve research groups worldwide. One participant also investigated the deformation of
the tested carbon fabric. The aim of this work was to obtain comparable results in order to make a step
toward standardization of permeability measurements. Unidirectional injections were thus conducted to
determine the unsaturated in-plane permeability tensor of the fabric. Procedures used by participants
were specified in the guidelines defined for this benchmark. Participants were asked to use the same val-
ues for parameters such as fiber volume fraction, injection pressure and fluid viscosity to minimize
sources of scatter. The comparison of the results from each participant was encouraging. The scatter
between data obtained while respecting the guidelines was below 25%. However, a higher dispersion
was observed when some parameters differed from the recommendations of this exercise.
