Unsaturated Soil Mechanics in Engineering Practice

Unsaturated Soil Mechanics in Engineering Practice

The definitive guide to unsaturated soil— from theworld's experts on the subject

This book builds upon and substantially updates Fredlund andRahardjo's publication, Soil Mechanics for UnsaturatedSoils, the current standard in the field of unsaturated soils.It provides readers with more thorough coverage of the state of theart of unsaturated soil behavior and better reflects the manner inwhich practical unsaturated soil engineering problems are solved.Retaining the fundamental physics of unsaturated soil behaviorpresented in the earlier book, this new publication places greateremphasis on the importance of the "soil-water characteristic curve"in solving practical engineering problems, as well as thequantification of thermal and moisture boundary conditions based onthe use of weather data. Topics covered include:

  • Theory to Practice of Unsaturated Soil Mechanics
  • Nature and Phase Properties of Unsaturated Soil
  • State Variables for Unsaturated Soils
  • Measurement and Estimation of State Variables
  • Soil-Water Characteristic Curves for Unsaturated Soils
  • Ground Surface Moisture Flux Boundary Conditions
  • Theory of Water Flow through Unsaturated Soils
  • Solving Saturated/Unsaturated Water Flow Problems
  • Air Flow through Unsaturated Soils
  • Heat Flow Analysis for Unsaturated Soils
  • Shear Strength of Unsaturated Soils
  • Shear Strength Applications in Plastic and LimitEquilibrium
  • Stress-Deformation Analysis for Unsaturated Soils
  • Solving Stress-Deformation Problems with Unsaturated Soils
  • Compressibility and Pore Pressure Parameters
  • Consolidation and Swelling Processes in Unsaturated Soils

Unsaturated Soil Mechanics in Engineering Practice isessential reading for geotechnical engineers, civil engineers, andundergraduate- and graduate-level civil engineering students with afocus on soil mechanics.
