Experimental and applied modeling of unsaturated soils : proceedings of sessions of GeoShanghai 2010, June 3-5, 2010, Shanghai, China by Laureano R Hoyos( )

6 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 638 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This Geotechnical Special Publication contains 28 papers examining the most current thinking and practices involving unsaturated soils. Geotechnical and civil engineers all over the world face problems with a wide range of geosystems involving materials that remain under partially saturated conditions throughout the year. The lack of education and training among engineering graduates and practitioners to deal properly with unsaturated soil conditions has resulted in faulty or excessively conservative designs, frequent construction delays, and deficient long-term performance of built infrastructure. Over the last few decades, however, the discipline of unsaturated soil mechanics has begun to receive increasing attention worldwide, providing better explanations for soil behavioral patterns than conventional saturated soil mechanics."--Pub. desc
