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.


Phase Properties and Relations. Stress State Variables. Measurements of Soil Suction. Flow Laws. Measurement of Permeability. Steady--State Flow. Pore Pressure Parameters. Shear Strength Theory. Measurement of Shear Strength Parameters. Plastic and Limit Equilibrium. Volume Change Theory. Measurements of Volume Change Indices. Volume Change Predictions. One--Dimensional Consolidation and Swelling. Two-- and Three--Dimensional Unsteady--State Flow and Nonisothermal Analyses. Appendices. References. Index.
