Abstract
THEORY OF FRACTALS WILL BE USED TO DESCRIBE SOIL STRUCTURES AND TO DESCRIBE ALTERATIONS IN SOIL STRUCTURE DURING DEFORMATION. THE WORK PRODUCT WILL CONSIST OF COMPUTER BASED MATHEMATICAL MODELS FOR DESCRIBING SOIL MICROSTRUCTURE, MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSIONS FOR EXPRESSING SOIL PARTICLE INTERACTION FORCES IN A MANNER COMPATIBLE WITH FRACTAL THEORY, AND RECOMMENDATIONS FOR IMAGING AND IMAGE ANALYSIS TECHNIQUES FOR OBTAINING LABORATORY DATA ON SOIL SAMPLES.
