Desiccation Cracking in Clay

A Cross Section Model

solving the diffusion equation for suction
Solving the Diffusion Equation for Suction
  • Suction caused by negative pore pressure from evaporation
  • Start with clay of variable stress
  • Add flux from the top from evaporation
  • Once soil reaches a critical stress level, a crack forms
