Influences of Deviatoric Stress on the Soil-Water Characteristic Curve

Abstract:

Article Preview

The soil-water characteristic curve (SWCC) is one of the major research subjects in unsaturated soil mechanics. To study the influence of deviatoric stress on the SWCC of an unsaturated soil, a series of triaxial drained shear tests by controlling constant net mean stress and suction were conducted. It was found that the SWCC was dependent on deviatoric stress. A unified SWCC equation was proposed including not only water content and suction, but also net mean stress and deviatoric stress.
