Resource Type: conference paper
Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.13/802806
Description: This paper presents an overview of elasto-plastic modelling of unsaturated soils. Alternative stress and strain variables that have been used in constitutive models for unsaturated soils are discussed... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.13/802797
Description: Yield surfaces for unsaturated soils are inevitably non-convex if the size of the yield surface has to increase with increasing suction. An expanding yield surface with increasing suction is crucial f... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.13/937075
Description: Shear strength is one of the fundamental properties of unsaturated soils. It has been found to change with matric suction. Various shear strength equations have been proposed for predicting the shear ... More

Resource Type: conference paper
Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.13/935125
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. A constitutive model should therefore represent the soil behaviour over ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.13/1042539
Description: Partially saturated soils can be loaded in different ways; for instance, mechanically and hydraulically. In addition, cycles of loading and unloading can be applied. The Barcelona Basic Model (BBM) is... More
