Description
Proceedings of the Fourth International Conference on Unsaturated Soils, held in Carefree, Arizona, April 2-6, 2006. Sponsored by the Geo-Institute of ASCE; International Society of Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering, Committee TC6 on Unsaturated Soils; Canadian Geotechnical Society .

This Geotechnical Special Publication contains 219 papers documenting the experience of researchers and practitioners from around the world concerning a vast array of unsaturated soil problems. Theoretical and methodological advances in laboratory testing of shear strength and volume change behavior, suction measurement techniques, soil water characteristic behavior, constitutive and numerical modeling, microscale modeling, foundation behavior, heave of slabs and pavements, evapotraspirative covers, geophysical applications, liquefaction and soil dynamics, pavements and slopes, soil-atmospheric interaction, desiccation and shrinkage, in situ testing, seepage, flow of water and gas, and design of waste depositories with emphasis on temperature effects are among the topics dealt with in the framework of unsaturated soil behavior. Materials addressed include natural soils, both expansive and nonexpansive, chemically stabilized soil, geosynthetics, geocomposite soils, and bentonite products.
