I expect that Unsaturated Soil Mechanics in Engineering Practice will remain an essential reference for educators, researchers and practitioners for a long time to come. (Geotechnical News, 1 December 2012)
Présentation de l'éditeur
The principles and concepts for unsaturated soils are developed as extensions of saturated soils. Addresses problems where soils have a matric suction or where pore–water pressure is negative. Covers theory, measurement and use of the fundamental properties of unsaturated soils––permeability, shear strength and volume change. Includes a significant amount of case studies.
