The shear strength of unsaturated soils



The shear strength of unsaturated soils



Canadian Geotechnical Journal 15(3): 313-321



The shear strength of an unsaturated soil is written in terms of two independent stress state variables. In one form of the shear strength equation, the transition from a saturated soil to an unsaturated soil is readily visible. In a second form of the equation, changes in total stress and in pore-water pressure are easily visualized.
