About this book

This book presents the collection of technical papers which includes research on two important topics in geotechnical engineering; the characterization of unsaturated soils. The papers in this collection are representative of local challenges facing geotechnical engineers in the Middle East, but their contributions can also be extended to other regions of the world.
