  • About the Edition

    This collection contains contributions from leading researchers on the engineering behaviour of unsaturated soil. It includes contributions dealing with the measurement of suction, discussions about how pore-water affects the engineering behaviour of soils and the important role played by soil-water characteristic (water retention) curves. This leads on to applications of unsaturated soil behaviour within geotechnical engineering practice, dealing with collapsible soils, foundations, and slopes. The collection is valuable both in contributing to the research effort on unsaturated soil behaviour and also in showing how unsaturated soil concepts can be applied within geotechnical engineering practice. It shows how researchers are making significant headway in establishing rational approaches to dealing with these complex circumstances. Audience: This book will be of interest to both researchers and practitioners dealing with unsaturated soil behaviour.

      Under these theoretical frameworks, many applications to geotechnical problems are made in the field of engineering – for example, the studies by Jommi () and Iizuka and Tachibana (). This paper presents some trials to extend the theory of unsaturated soil mechanics to applications to boundary value : IizukaAtsushi, TachibanaShinya, TakeyamaTomohide, SugiyamaYuri, NomuraShun, OhtaHideki.

    Unsaturated soil mechanics is now increasingly recognized as an integral part of mainstream soil mechanics, and the importance and relevance of unsaturated soil mechanics for the broad field of geotechnical engineering no longer needs to be emphasized. The two volumes making up Unsaturated soil. The application of unsaturated soil mechanics in geotechnical engineering practice requires considerably more computational effort than is involved for the application of saturated soil mechanics. Unsaturated soil mechanics formulations are nonlinear because the unsaturated soil property functions are .

Book Description. There are other books on unsaturated soil mechanics, but this book is different. Unsaturated soil mechanics is only one aspect of a continuous range of soil mechanics studies that extends from the rheology of high water content soil slurries to the mechanics of soft soils, to stiff saturated soils, to unsaturated soils, and, at the far end of the range, to dry soils.

Conditions in arid and semi-arid climates favor the formation of the most problematic collapsible soils. The mechanisms that account for almost all naturally occurring collapsible soil deposits are debris flows, rapid alluvial depositions, and wind-blown deposits (loess).Cited by:   Lee "Unsaturated Soil Concepts and Their Application in Geotechnical Practice" por disponible en Rakuten Kobo.

In applying unsaturated soil mechanics in practice, it is therefore important to realise and allow for the probability that soil will, either seasonally or occasionally, pass from the unsaturated to the saturated state and even from unsaturation to dryness.
