Paper Title:
Triaxial Shrinkages Tests of Unsaturated Compacted Clay
  Abstract

In this paper, The GDS unsaturated soil triaxial apparatus are employed for experimental tests to obtain the main characteristics of the drying paths for compacted clay. In order to study the soil water characteristic curve and shrinkage coefficient under deferent net mean stress. The results show that shrinkage index and the soil-water characteristic curve are dependent on net mean stress. At a given matric suction, with the increase of net mean stress, the void ratio and water content of soil sample is decrease, but the degree of saturation is increased.
