The results are evaluated and compared to existing theoretical approaches to model the non-equilibrium soil–water retention behaviour as well as to experimental findings from other researchers. Furthermore, suction stress characteristic curves under non-equilibrium conditions are obtained. Finally, the importance and the application of the results in hydro-mechanical modelling of unsaturated soils are discussed.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/11420/2525||ISSN:||2352-3808||Institute:||Geotechnik und Baubetrieb B-5||Type:||(wissenschaftlicher) Artikel|
