Disturbed state concept for partially saturated soils.

A general elasto-plastic model for partially saturated soils is proposed, based on the disturbed state concept (DSC). This model is unified and simplified, includes both saturated and unsaturated states and is able to capture some typical features of partially saturated soils. The saturated state can be considered as a special case. Experimental results on a remolded sandy silt are used to calibrate the model.
