  • Unsaturated Soil Mechanics with Probability and Statistics

    1st Edition

    By Ryosuke Kitamura, Kazunari Sako

    Soil is fundamentally a multi-phase material – consisting of solid particles, water and air. In soil mechanics and geotechnical engineering it is widely treated as an elastic, elastoplastic or visco-elastoplastic material, and consequently regarded as a continuum body. However, this book explores…
