Summary:
Flux type boundary conditions that are found in unsaturated soil zones are influenced by man-induced changes in the surface and groundwater regime. The papers presented in this volume address recent practice, experience, and advances in unsaturated soils engineering. The magnitude of unsaturated soil concerns is clearly identified through the diversity of areas discussed and rational, unified approaches for dealing  Read more...
