Laboratory testing

Considering the increasing incidence of cyclic loadings on engineering structures and the enhancement of design analysis, soil testing under cyclic conditions has renewed its importance. Laboratory tests are conducted to simulate as near as possible field conditions. Assumed conditions aid on the choice of the tests to be conducted in order to determina...

The hydraulic conductivity for unsaturated soil conditions is more difficult to estimate than for the saturated condition. In addition, as the soil transitions from intact to cracked, the difficulty in estimating the unsaturated hydraulic conductivity increases. One critical step in the determination of unsaturated flow hydraulic conductivity is the eva...
