Soil Mechanics for Unsaturated Soils
Presenter: Prof. Delwyn G. The objective of the course is to introduce unsaturated soil mechanics within the framework of classical soil mechanics by incorporating soil suction. The first lecture introduces unsaturated soils by illustrated practical problems. The second lecture presents the state variables by which the transition from the saturated soil condition to the unsaturated soil condition can be described, in particular the matric suction as the difference between pore-air and pore-water pressures. The measurement of soil suction helps in linking the state of stresses in field and laboratory conditions.
