A comparative study of permeability measurement by thermopermeametry (TPA) and beam bending was performed on cement paste. To bring the two measurements into agreement, it is necessary to recognize that the pore solution has a thermal expansion coefficient about one and a half times that of bulk liquid and to account for viscoelastic stress relaxation during TPA experiments. The anomalous thermal expansion is not accounted for by the presence of ions in the cement paste pore solution.
