Resum
Compacted expansive clays are considered in the design of barriers for different engineering applications. The expansion and sealing capacity of those clays when hydrated is the main engineering property in that particular context. Numerical models used to analyse and predict the behaviour of these barriers need, among other constitutive laws, the soil water retention curve. In general, numerical codes used in those calculations are formulated considering the degree of saturation as the variable...
