<p>The presence of unsaturated flow in tropical lateritic soils of unknown hydromechanical behavior may lead to severe geotechnical problems. It is known that soil-water characteristic curves (SWCC) are a valuable tool to define this behavior and facilitate the suction estimation, acting on tests performed with no control of such parameter.

<p>This paper evaluates porosity changes in compacted soil subjected to acidic leachate percolation through different dry unit weights. The porosity of compacted soil is presented in different nominal porosities or dry unit weights (41.9% and 15.5 kN/m3, 43.8% and 15.0 kN/m³, and 45.7% and 14.5 kN/m³) percolated with a sulfuric acid solut...
