Abstract
A discussion of water phase change in unsaturated soils that develop capillary effects is first carried out in the paper. A distinction between the GR (geothermal reservoir) and the NUS (nonisothermal unsaturated soil) approaches is performed. Several aspects concerning advective and nonadvective fluxes of vapour are described secondly and some relationships concerning the case of mass motion in a closed system subjected to temperature gradients derived. Since the structure of unsaturated clays ...
