By Geoffrey E. Blight,Eng Choon Leong

Residual soils are present in many elements of the area and are used commonly as development fabrics for roads, embankments and dams, and to aid the rules of structures, bridges and load-bearing pavements. The features and engineering homes of residual soils can vary considerably from these of the extra commonplace transported soils. the truth that residual soils happen often in components with tropical and sub-tropical climates and (extensively) in semi-arid climates, provides one other measurement to their engineering functionality, that of unsaturation.


Although there are lots of books that take care of the mechanics of soils, those are dependent often at the features and behavior of saturated transported soils. the 1st variation of this publication was once the 1st publication to be written particularly concerning the mechanics of residual soils. The booklet was once ready via a panel of authors drawn from the Technical Committee on Tropical and Residual Soils of the overseas Society for Soil Mechanics and origin Engineering. It was once written as a pragmatic specialist consultant for geotechnical engineers operating with residual soils.


The moment version has retained the precious details inside the first version. the current editors and authors have widely revised and augmented the content material to deliver it thoroughly modern, including considerably to the sections on unsaturated soil mechanics and expanding the variety and variety of instructive case histories. moreover, sections on pedocretes, dispersive soils and karst were added.
