Theoretical and Numerical Unsaturated Soil Mechanics by Tom Schanz

These proceedings are a continuation of the series of International Conferences in Germany entitled Mechanics of Unsaturated Soils. The primary objective is to discuss and understand unsaturated soil behaviour such that engineered activities are made better with times in terms of judgment and quality. The proceedings contain recent research by leading experts in Mechanics of Unsaturated Soils.


From the reviews: Many seminal contributions have been published in this area during the past two decades, and this book represents yet another important contribution to the field. ... The contributions cover topics ranging from thermo-hydromechanical modeling to hypoplastic and Cam-Clay constitutive models extended to unsaturated soils. ... Some interesting field applications of unsaturated soil mechanics are also presented. Overall, the book is rich in technical content and will be of interest to established researchers as well as Ph.D. students working in unsaturated soil mechanics.
