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.

E.G. Youngs, in Encyclopedia of Soils in the Environment, In considering water in unsaturated soils, Edgar Buckingham, at the beginning of the century, had postulated that water was held in the interstices between solid particles by means of surface tension forces, and had defined the capillary potential dependent on the water content.A gradient of this capillary potential would produce.

Introduction. In recent years, the hydromechanical coupling in unsaturated soils as well as their deformation behaviour has been subject to increased research. At this time, the theoretical base for the hydromechanical coupling in deformable porous media with two pore fluids is known, Lewis & Schrefler ().

Understanding the behaviour of unsaturated soils is becoming exclusively essential for geotechnical engineers and designers. This book includes the Proceedings of the International Conference "From Experimental Evidence Towards Numerical Modeling of Unsaturated Soils" uniting researchers and practitioners in geotechnical engineering on a single platform and discussing the problems associated.
