The definitive guide to unsaturated soil— from the world's experts on the subjectThis book builds upon and substantially updates Fredlund and Rahardjo's publication, Soil Mechanics for Unsaturated Soils, the current standard in the field of unsaturated soils. It provides readers with more thorough coverage of the state of the art of unsaturated soil behavior and better reflects the manner in which practical unsaturated soil engineering problems are solved. Retaining the fundamental physics of unsaturated soil behavior presented in the earlier book, this new publication places greater emphasis on the importance of the "soil-water characteristic curve" in solving practical engineering problems, as well as the quantification of thermal and moisture boundary conditions based on the use of weather data. Topics covered include:Theory to Practice of Unsaturated Soil MechanicsNature and Phase Properties of Unsaturated SoilState Variables for Unsaturated SoilsMeasurement and Estimation of State VariablesSoil-Water Characteristic Curves for Unsaturated SoilsGround Surface Moisture Flux Boundary ConditionsTheory of Water Flow through Unsaturated SoilsSolving Saturated/Unsaturated Water Flow ProblemsAir Flow through Unsaturated SoilsHeat Flow Analysis for Unsaturated SoilsShear Strength of Unsaturated SoilsShear Strength Applications in Plastic and Limit EquilibriumStress-Deformation Analysis for Unsaturated SoilsSolving Stress-Deformation Problems with Unsaturated SoilsCompressibility and Pore Pressure ParametersConsolidation and Swelling Processes in Unsaturated SoilsUnsaturated Soil Mechanics in Engineering Practice is essential reading for geotechnical engineers, civil engineers, and undergraduate- and graduate-level civil engineering students with a focus on soil mechanics.
