Hydraulic Modeling

Volume change of soils may be caused either by external (mechanical) or internal (hydraulic) stresses or a combination of both. A complete description of volume change must therefore include both mechanical and hydraulic stresses. By combining theories of mechanical and hydraulic stress states, a hydraulic function, which predicts the change of water volume as a function of the stress state parameter soil water suction (water retention curve), is adopted to model volume change.
