Abstract
In unsaturated soil mechanics, the quest for an effective stress playing the same role as Terzaghi’s effective stress does for saturated soils has introduced a long standing debate, dating back to the 1960s. Several contributions have been proposed since the early work of Bishop. It is well recognized to date that a single constitutive stress is not sufficient by itself to catch the main features of the behaviour of unsaturated soils and it is often combined with matric suction. In this paper,...
