[2] applied conventional direct shear tests to the high water content remolded soil obtained from the sliding slope of the Hsien-du-shan slope and suggested the normal stresses of 0.5, 1.0, 2, and 3.49 MPa for the experimental testing.
For direct shear test, the preparation of red-layers specimens is as follows: firstly, the field sampled specimens were completely air-dried and then sieved by 2 mm sieve, and water was added to make remolded soil samples with different water contents.
The shear strength envelopes of the remolded soil specimens were shown in Figure 8; the values of cohesion c and internal friction angle [phi] of the soil specimens with different water contents were shown in Table 2.
Mualem [5] proposed a model, widely known as the Mualem model, for unsaturated infiltration coefficient prediction by studying 45 groups of undisturbed soil and remolded soil in 1976, which has been widely applied.
The remolded soil sample used was obtained from an area adjacent to the interurban railway connecting Wuhan and Xianning.

The measurements were extended into the midrange of the SWCC for undisturbed and remolded soil specimens to compare the measurement results.
The surface vibratory or pneumatic compaction is regarded as the simplest and the cheapest method for densification of loose, saturated and cohesionless remolded soils in the tsunami affected areas.
