Soil mechanics for unsaturated soils

Author: D G Fredlund; H Rahardjo
Publisher: New York : Wiley, ©1993.
Edition/Format:   Print book : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
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.
