Compacted soils in embankments of dams, and roads, dikes, liners, etc. are commonly used in geotechnical engineering. Soil variability and uncertainty of a natural soil deposit and its properties are common challenges in geotechnical engineering design. The unsaturated soil mechanics is receiving increasing attention from researchers and as well as from practicing engineers. The present work is a review of research articles related to shear strength calculations for different conditions of strata and other parameters.
