Relationship between porosimetry measurement and soil-water characteristic curve for an unsaturated residual soil
Soil–water characteristic curve (SWCC) is an important tool for determining the engineering properties of unsaturated soil. This depends on the size and distribution of pore structures which control the permeability and ...
The effect of antecedent rainfall on slope stability
A case study is presented in order to identify the effect of antecedent rainfall on slope stability for Singapore. A storm in February 1995 (during which 95 mm of rain fell in 2 1/2 h) caused more than twenty shallow ...
Soil–water characteristic curves of Singapore residual soils
Soil–water characteristic curves were obtained for a number of Singapore residual soil samples. Soil samples were obtained from the two main residual soil formations, the Jurong sedimentary formation and the Bukit Timah ...
Modified triaxial apparatus for shearing-infiltration test
A triaxial apparatus was modified and developed for performing shearing-infiltration tests under saturated and unsaturated conditions. Miniature pore-water pressure transducers were installed at different heights of the ...
