Unsaturated Soils: Advances in Geo-Engineering comprises 136 contributions from leading international researchers and practitioners, presented at the First European Conference on Unsaturated Soils (Durham, UK, 2-4 July 2008). The papers report on the latest advances in geo-engineering aspects of unsaturated soils. It is the first collection to focus on research developments within Europe, where a resurgence of interest in unsaturated soil behaviour has lead to major advances. The volume is divided into five sections: - Advances in testing techniques, - Engineering behaviour, -Constitutive modelling, - Numerical modelling, -Case histories. The areas of application include slope stability, foundations, dams, contaminated land, landfill and nuclear waste repositories. The section on advances in testing techniques includes recent developments in high capacity tensiometers, spatial Time Domain Reflectometry and Environmental Scanning Electron Microscopy. The section on engineering behaviour includes the latest findings concerning factors affecting the water retention surface; volume change of soils during wetting and drying; peak, ultimate and residual strength of soils; small strain modulii and shear wave responses. The sections on Constitutive and Numerical modelling address major developments in coupled thermo-hydro-mechanical elasto-plastic models. Unsaturated Soils: Advances in Geo-Engineering contains 90 papers from 15 countries within Europe with a further 46 contributions from 15 other countries, and is a comprehensive collection that will be essential referencematerial for geo-engineers around the world.

New theories and testing techniques related with Unsaturated Soil Mechanics have proven to be valuable tools to study a broad spectrum of geo-materials which includes rocks, rock fills, frozen soils and domiciliary solid wastes. These new theories and testing techniques have permitted the analysis of several traditional problems from a new perspective (e.g., swelling or collapsible soils and compacted soils or pavements materials), and they have also shown their efficiency to study new energy-related problems like CO2 sequestration and nuclear waste disposal. Advances in Unsaturated Soils is a collection of papers from the 1st Pan-American Conference on Unsaturated Soils organized in Cartagena de Indias, Colombia, in February 2013. The volume includes 76 research papers coming for all over the world, as well as 7 keynotes papers by well known international researchers. The contributions present a variety of topics including: • Advances in testing techniques • Unsaturated soil behavior • Constitutive modeling and microstructure • Numerical modeling • Geotechnical problems Advances in Unsaturated Soils is expected to become a useful reference to academics and professionals involved in Unsaturated Soil Mechanics.

This volume contains the Proceedings of the Second International Workshop on Unsaturated Soils, which was held in Anacapri, Italy, from 23 to 25 June 2004. This meeting was organized by the Department of Geotechnical Engineering of the University of Naples Federico II and the Department of Mechanical and Structural Engineering of the University of Trento, under the auspices of the Technical Committee on Unsaturated Soils (TC6) of the ISSMGE and the Associazione Geotecnica Italiana (AGI). In line with the spirit of the first workshop in 2000, post-graduate and post-doctoral researchers from different universities were invited to present their work. This book contains peer-reviewed papers on unsaturated soils, particularly new developments in laboratory testing, experimental data on compacted and natural soils and constitutive and numerical modelling of unsaturated soil behaviour.

Unsaturated soil mechanics is now increasingly recognized as an integral part of mainstream soil mechanics, and the importance and relevance of unsaturated soil mechanics for the broad field of geotechnical engineering no longer needs to be emphasized. The two volumes making up Unsaturated soils include papers from the 4th Asia Pacific Conference on Unsaturated Soils (Newcastle, NSW, Australia, 23-25 November 2009). Experimental Studies in Unsaturated Soils and Expansive Soils contains contributions which describe field and laboratory studies in unsaturated soils and expansive soils. The keynote and overview lectures, and the contributions on theoretical and numerical advances in the field, are published in the companion volume, Theoretical and Numerical Advances in Unsaturated Soil Mechanics. Both volumes will proof to be invaluable to academics and research students in unsaturated soil mechanics.

Advances in Unsaturated Soil, Seepage, and Environmental Geotechnics represents the latest advances in applied unsaturated soil mechanics, and coupled phenomena in geotechnical engineering practice. This Geotechnical Special Publication contains 42 papers that were presented at the GeoShanghai Conference held in Shanghai, China from June 6-8, 2006. The book begins with two state-of-the-art papers on geoenvironmental engineering and unsaturated soil mechanics applied to field problems. It then continues by highlighting papers on unsaturated soil phenomena, coupled phenomena and transport phenomena. The book showcases new experimental evidence and theoretical developments on strength and deformational behaviors of both expansive soil and collapsible loess, as well as some new testing techniques to characterize volumetric change and strength of these problematic soils. It reports on the latest understanding of various coupled phenomena in soils such as hydro-biological, hydro-mechanical, hydro-thermal, thermal-mechanical and hydro-chemical coupling. The papers also address the latest advances in geoenvironmental applications including the sustainability of landfills, removal of various contaminants from soils, soil-contaminant interactions and soil stabilization.
