In this work the influence of structure and volumetric straining on the evolution of the water retention curve of fine-grained soils (clays and silts) is discussed. Criteria for the formulation of their water retention curve are then proposed. The study also shows results of prediction of seepage through unsaturated soils, in order to discuss the importance of the above mentioned criteria in the modeling.
