Paper Title:
Experimental Study on Relationship between Saturation Degree and Void Ratio of Remolded Soils on Drying Path
  Abstract

By using of shrinkage curve, the empirical relationship between the degree of saturation and the void ratio on drying path was established for four types of soils including sand, silt, clay and soft clay. It was indicated that during the process of drying, the soil samples continuously shrunk with the decrease of saturation degree. For test samples of sand and silt, the curve of saturation degree and void ratio is flat; For test samples of clay and silt clay, however, the shrinkage of the soil samples was almost fulfilled when the degree of the saturation of soil samples decreased to 90% and the void ratio of the soil samples almost kept unchanged while the degree saturation of soil was reduced to 70%.
