This paper presents the results of recent experimental and theoretical studies of a colapsible soil. Suction controlled oedometer tests under different stress paths have been performed on a colapsible soil with the purpose to get a better understanding on the compressibility and collapsibility of this soil.
KEYWORDS: Unsaturated soil, Collapse, Elasto-plastic model.
