There he carried out some of the earliest research on the mechanics of unsaturated soils, under the supervision of the legendary Alan Bishop. His early work, published jointly with Bishop and others in , and , provided data that is still being used by new generations of researchers on unsaturated soil behaviour.
He soon became interested in the application of unsaturated soil mechanics to residual soils and mine waste and has published extensively in these areas. He has also applied unsaturated soil mechanics principles in related fields such as concrete and silo technology.

He edited and co-authored the first edition of "Mechanics of residual soils", which was produced during his Chairmanship. We provide complimentary e-inspection copies of primary textbooks to instructors considering our books for course adoption. Most VitalSource eBooks are available in a reflowable EPUB format which allows you to resize text to suit you and enables other accessibility features. Where the content of the eBook requires a specific layout, or contains maths or other special characters, the eBook will be available in PDF PBK format, which cannot be reflowed.

Shopping Cart Summary. Engineers recognise more and more the importance of understanding and predicting the response of soils in the unsaturated portion of the soil profile. However, a gap still exists between research and engineering practice in unsaturated soil mechanics.
This paper makes an attempt to serve fundamental concepts of unsaturated soil mechanics using a language as simple as possible. In particular, quantitative prediction tools are presented within the familiar framework of saturated soil mechanics.
