Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.13/1060921
Description: Unsaturated soil behaviour, such as volume change, shear strength and yield stress, is usually interpreted and modelled in terms of stress and suction. This approach is consistent with laboratory test... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.13/1066491
Description: An unsaturated soil is not a special type of soil, rather a state of the soil. All soils can be partially saturated with water. Therefore, constitutive models for soils should ideally represent the so... More
