Unsaturated Soil Mechanical Strength Experiment Study for the Yellow Levee
The soil unsaturated property is one of the main factors happening dike dangers such as craze and hole, even seriously slope collapse in the Yellow River dike. Based on the study of unsaturated mechanical experiment, the soil shear strength model formula can be proposed , and the changing rule of unsaturated soil mechanical properties be investigated for the typical levee soil of the Yellow River. It can provide theoretical and technical support for preventing the dike danger occurring, reducing the danger rate during the flood season, and establishing defend methods and instructing flood-defended.
