Article Preview

The matric suction has very important influence on the characteristics of unsaturated sand; and it is closely relevant to density. In order to discuss the relationship among the matric suction, water content and dry density, the matric suction of the eolian sand were measured in laboratory. The soil-water characteristics curves for unsaturated eolian sand with different dry densities are obtained. The test results show that the variation tendency of soil-water characteristics curves has been corresponding to the different densities.
