Application of soil-water characteristic curve taking stress influence into considerations in unsaturated seepage analysis

WithSh.M. Wang, H.B. Qin & G.Wang

It can be seen that, because of not considering the stress influence in these soil-water characteristic curves, the unsaturated soil permeability functions derived from soil-water characteristic curves also fail in considering the stress, which falls short of the actual situation, because in actual engineering the soil is in a stress state totally. Consequently, to establish the considering-the-stress-influence permeability function of unsaturated soil becomes a quite necessary basic work.
