Abstract

The soil-water characteristic curve plays the major role in describing both the hydraulic and mechanical behaviour of unsaturated soils. In the present study the Fredlund and Xing and van Genuchten equations have been used to model the soil-water characteristic curves of typical Greek soils including three hard soils - weak rocks. It is attempted to correlate the optimum curve fitting parameters with physical characteristics of the soils and compare parameters of soil-water characteristic curves of undisturbed and recomposed soils.
