Effective stress
<p>This state-of-the-art paper on the hydromechanical behavior of unsaturated soils focuses on the interpretation of the compression curves of unsaturated soils in terms of effective stress, with the goal of understanding the relative impacts of suction on the effective stress, net yield stress, effective yield stress and slope of the virgin compression li...

<p>Bearing capacity of saturated soils can be estimated using effective or total stress approaches extending the concepts proposed by Terzaghi (1943) and Skempton (1948), respectively. Recent studies have shown that similar approaches (i.e., Modified Effective Stress Approach, MESA and Modified Total Stress Approach, MTSA) can be used for interpretation an...
