Unsaturated soil - dry cracked earth

Unsaturated Soil Mechanics for Sustainable Geotechnics

PanAm-UNSAT 2017 will feature the latest research advances and engineering-practice innovations with a focus on characterization, modeling, design, construction, and field performance. Researchers, practitioners, students, and policy makers from around the world, particularly the Americas, will share the latest technical advances, engineering applications, and pedagogical approaches in the discipline of unsaturated soil mechanics.

Topics will include, but are not limited to:

  • Stress state quantification
  • Experimental laboratory and in-situ testing
  • Unsaturated rock behavior
  • Unsaturated permafrost behavior
  • Energy geotechnics
  • Sustainability
  • Cohesive-frictional soils
  • Numerical and constitutive modeling in geotechnical and geoenvironmental applications
