<p>The description of the stress state in soils is the foundational point around which an applied science should be built for engineering practice. The stress state description has proven to be pivotal for saturated soil mechanics and the same should be true for unsaturated soil mechanics. Continuum mechanics sets forth a series of principles upon which a ...

<p>The availability of statistical values for soil parameters is essential in reliability-based geotechnical design and sensitivity analysis. Unfortunately, there are few statistical studies available about unsaturated soil parameters. The primary objective of this paper is to present a methodology for the statistical assessment of hydraulic properties of ...
