Unsaturated Soil Engineering and Thermal Geotechnics

Unsaturated soil mechanics is widely considered one of the most important frontiers in geo engineering, with historical applications in slope and excavation stability, foundation engineering, and expansive soil hazards and emerging applications in waste containment, energy, and sustainability.This is an emerging and essential topic in which geotechnical and geological engineers, geoscientists, electrical and mechanical engineers, and other disciplines employ the principles of engineering physics, heat transfer in porous media, soil engineering, and rock mechanics for the advancement and design of renewable/sustainable energy systems, foundations and slopes, and environmental infrastructure.
