These volumes contain the proceedings of the Second European Conference on Unsaturated Soils, E-UNSAT 2012, held in Napoli, Italy, in June 2012. The event is the second of a series of European conferences, born on initiative of the researchers involved in the EU FP6 MUSE – Mechanics of Unsaturated Soils for Engineering – Research and Training Network, and follows the first successful one, organised in Durham, UK, in 2008. The conference series was then supported by Technical Committee 106 of the International Society of Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering on Unsaturated Soils, which is very active in promoting new opportunities to bring together researchers and practitioners to share advances in unsaturated soils mechanics and related engineering applications. A collection of more than one hundred papers is included in these volumes, addressing the three thematic areas experimental, including advances in testing techniques and soil behaviour, modelling, covering theoretical and constitutive issues together with numerical and physical modelling, and engineering, focusing on approaches, case histories and geo-environmental themes. The areas of application of the papers embrace most of the geotechnical problems related to unsaturated soils. Increasing interest in geo-environmental problems, including chemical coupling, marks new perspectives in unsaturated soil mechanics. We hope this book will provide a valuable up-to-date reference across the subject for both researchers and practitioners.

Abstract

These volumes contain the proceedings of the Second European Conference on Unsaturated Soils, E-UNSAT 2012, held in Napoli, Italy, in June 2012. The event is the second of a series of European conferences, born on initiative of the researchers involved in the EU FP6 MUSE – Mechanics of Unsaturated Soils for Engineering – Research and Training Network, and follows the first successful one, organised in Durham, UK, in 2008. The conference series was then supported by Technical Committee 106 of the International Society of Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering on Unsaturated Soils, which is very active in promoting new opportunities to bring together researchers and practitioners to share advances in unsaturated soils mechanics and related engineering applications. A collection of more than one hundred papers is included in these volumes, addressing the three thematic areas experimental, including advances in testing techniques and soil behaviour, modelling, covering theoretical and constitutive issues together with numerical and physical modelling, and engineering, focusing on approaches, case histories and geo-environmental themes. The areas of application of the papers embrace most of the geotechnical problems related to unsaturated soils. Increasing interest in geo-environmental problems, including chemical coupling, marks new perspectives in unsaturated soil mechanics. We hope this book will provide a valuable up-to-date reference across the subject for both researchers and practitioners.
