The study of hydraulic conductivity or permeability (k) of fresh cement pastes is a fundamental stage to understand the concrete placement in their formworks, and for the more extended study of the rheology of cementitious materials at fresh state. The results here are obtained on fresh cement pastes (PC) PC30, PC36 and PC40 with water- to- cement ratio (w/c) of 0.30, 0.36 and 0.40 respectively with a classical permeameter traditionally used in geotechnical for soil permeability measurements: the constant head permeameter. It has the advantage of allowing accurate measurements and staggered over time. The analysis of results obtained are in agreement with those obtained elsewhere in the literature.
