about this item

Unsaturated soils are geomaterials with interconnected pores saturated by gas and water.They  pervasively exist in the shallow surface of the earth. In a broader sense, other three-phase geomaterials, such as rockfill materials, gas-bearing shale, swelling rocks and freezing soils, belong to the same class of materials as unsaturated soils in that they share common behavior features.

This two-volume proceedings contains more than 140 technical papers presented at the 6th Asia-Pacific Conference on Unsaturated Soils (Guilin, China, 23-26 October 2015). Volume I addresses the fundamental behavior of unsaturated soils, including ten keynote reports written by invited scientists and the first Asia-Pacific distinguished lecture, while Volume II presents theoretical and numerical modeling and engineering applications. The topics include the full spectrum from theory to practice, with strong relevance to regional issues such as collapse/swell, freezing/thawing, desiccation shrinkage, rainfall-induced slope failure, and contaminant transport.This book explores the state-of-the-art  in unsaturated soil mechanics, and will prove to be invaluable to researchers and practitioners in unsaturated soil mechanics and related fields.
