Abstract

In geotechnical engineering structures, there may be a thin layer of soil between soil and structure through which, load transferring occurs. This layer is called soil-structure interface and the mechanical response of geostructures depends strongly on the behavior of this layer. If the soil mass is in unsaturated state, then the interface is technically called unsaturated interface. In this paper, a constitutive model for unsaturated soil-structure interfaces is introduced. The soil-water characteristic curve and the concept of modified effective stress are adopted to create an appropriate hydro-mechanical coupling. The model predictive capacity is evaluated by comparing its predictions with the existing experimental data.
