Basic Geotechnics.............Effect… stress?
« on: July 25, 2010, 10:00:14 AM »
Here is just a basic question

the ground next to a river consists of clay and the water table is 1m below the ground level. This means that some of the clay is fully saturated and some is not.

However the river then floods so the ground is submerged below 1m of water. So the water table is obviously above the ground level now

What happens to the

-Total vertical stress
- Pore water pressure
-Effective vertical stress
