The effects of fiber composition factors of 14 geotextiles which are thickness, porosity, fiber length and diameter etc. on the transmissivity were examined and in-plane permeability of geotextiles under thickness change, transmissivity, confined load were analyzed by the constitutive equations. And the effects of laminar structure on the permittivity of laminar geotextile composites which were manufactured with fiber packing densities were assessed. Transmissivities were increased with thickness of geotextiles and in-plane permeability coefficients were increased with porosity and fiber diameter. The effects of porosity were decreased with normal stress and slightly increased with fiber length. Transmissivities were increased with fiber diameter and showed same tendensy for the same fiber length. Permittivities of laminar geotextile composites were influenced by the waterhead loss in the inner interface and the connection shape of these composites to water path was interpreted as bell mouth type or soft flux pipe type.
