The objective of the course is to introduce unsaturated soil mechanics within the framework of classical soil mechanics by incorporating soil suction. The first lecture introduces unsaturated soils by illustrated practical problems. The link between field and laboratory conditions is established by the “Soil-Water Characterization Curve” (SWCC) also called the soil retention curve.

Most books designed for an introductory course in geotechnical engineering focus on saturated soil mechanics. Geotechnical Engineering: Unsaturated and Saturated Soils takes a new approach, based on the fundamentals of unsaturated soils and extends the description to a wide variety of by: Unsaturated Soils: A fundamental interpretation of soil behaviour covers a rapidly advancing area of study, research and engineering practice and offers a deeper appreciation UNSATURATED SOILS V1 book the key characteristics of unsaturated soil.

It provides students and researchers with a framework for understanding soil behaviour and demonstrates how to interpret experimental strength and compression by: 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.

This course is based on notes presented in the book “Unsaturated Soil Mechanics in Engineering practice” published in by the speaker. The objective of the course is to introduce unsaturated soil mechanics within the framework of classical soil mechanics by incorporating soil suction.
