Unsaturated Soil Mechanics with Probability and Statistics

1st Edition

Ryosuke Kitamura, Kazunari Sako
August 27, 2019

Soil is fundamentally a multi-phase material – consisting of solid particles, water and air. In soil mechanics and geotechnical engineering it is widely treated as an elastic, elastoplastic or visco-elastoplastic material, and consequently regarded as a continuum body. However, this book explores...
