Residual soils, found in many parts of the world, are frequently used as construction materials for roads, embankments, and dams, as well as for foundations for buildings, bridges, and load-bearing pavements. This book discusses the characteristics and engineering properties of residual soils and finds that they vary significantly from the more familiar transported soils. The fact that residual soils often occur in areas with tropical, subtropical and semi-arid climates, adds another dimension to their engineering performance.

This title has been written as a practical professional guide for geotechnical engineers working with residual soils, and as such, deals specifically with the mechanics of residual soils.
