The paper describes the changes in pore water pressure as a function of initial soil water content and applied stress. A hypothesis is developed that relates pore water pressure of unsaturated soils during application of applied mechanical stress to change in soil structure. The paper describes also a procedure for estimating the critical stress for other soils from a soil's clay content using the relationships developed in this study.
