Tropical residual soils differ from transported soils which are principally derived from coastal, fluvial, Tropical residual soils book blown or glacial processes. In the tropics, residual soils probably form that largest group with which the engineer has to deal. Being formed in situ these soils have particular characteristics that distinguish them from material 4/5(1).

It provides insight into the engineering behaviour of tropical residual soils, which will be applicable to small or extensive construction works worldwide on such soils. This book covers almost all aspects of residual soils, from genesis, classification, formation, sampling and testing to behaviour of weakly bonded and unsaturated soil, volume.

In humid tropical regions, weathering of rock is more intense and extends to greater depth than in other parts of the world. Residual soils develop in place as a consequence of weathering, primarily chemical weathering.

The mineralogy of residual soils is partly inherited from the parent rock from which they were. Sampling and testing are prerequisites in determining the index and engineering properties of soils.

This chapter is an overview of the sampling and testing of tropical residual soils, and highlights the distinctive procedures in the handling and constraints of calibration for commonly used by: 2.

The Handbook of Tropical Residual Soil Engineering is intended as a complete reference source and manual for every engineer working on or interested in soil and foundation engineering in tropical areas. Almost all aspects of tropical residual soils are treated, including a range of engineering applications.

A dedicated part of the book is. Publ Sao Paulo: Braxilian Society, for Soil Mechanics, Soil erosion and slope stability in tropical soils are considered briefly in general terms. A discussion of papers submitted to this session of the conference is followed by a discu~on of the relevant sections of the draft report of the Committee on Tropical Soils of the ISSMFE.

In a tropical region, residual soil layers can be very thick, sometimes extending for hundred of meters before reaching unweathered rock. This book has gathered state-of-the-art knowledge from a number of experienced experts working in foundation engineering in tropical residual soils.

A particular surprise is the omission from the book of any reference at all to the comprehensive Working Party Report on Tropical Residual Soils by the Engineering Group of the Geological Society. Residual soils are found in many parts of the world. Like other soils, they are used extensively in construction, either to build upon, or as construction material.

They are formed when the rate of rock weathering is more rapid than transportation of the weathered particles by e.g., water, gravity and wind, which results in a large share of the soils formed remaining in place. Huat et al. [11] collected lots of data and in their book, presented an overview of the index and engineering properties of some tropical residual soils.

First Published eBook Cited by: 7.Much has been written on the various tropical residual soils, in pedological, geological, geographical and engineering literature. However, from the engineering point of view, there is considerable confusion as to what defines a residual soil, how it is formed and what its properties are.
