Numerical simulation on tree water uptake Explores issues related to the numerical simulation (finite element and finite different) of moisture migration patterns in the unsaturated zone and in the vicinity of established vegetation.
Soil suction and water flow in unsaturated soil Unsaturated flow is a problem of clear significance to geotechnical engineers. The unsaturated hydraulic conductivity and the specific moisture capacity are the two most significant parameters to be determined for unsaturated flow.
Unsaturated slope stability analysis The stability of an unsaturated soil slope is considered in relation to soil suction. These changes primarily affect the matric suction and the factor of safety of the slope.
Three dimensional slope modelling Computer program was established to model 3D slopes and perform the required calculations.
