Abstract

In this paper a brief and critical review of the current literature on hydro-mechanical coupling is presented. Furthermore, an enhanced discrete element model is used to investigate the mutual relationship of soil water retention curve and suction stress curves and how the two are affected as a result of change in the initial porosity of the soil sample. The model revealed the suction stress values in wetting were less affected as in drying branch as a result of the change in the initial porosity of the soil sample.
