    Geotechnical Engineering in Residual Soils digs deep to help enrich the reader's knowledge on the subject of soils--in particular, residual soils--as they pertain to engineering. Appearing mostly in underdeveloped parts of the United States and tropical countries, these soils are playing an increasingly important role in building designs as /5(3). 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.

Foundation Engineering: Design and Construction in Tropical Soils - CRC Press Book Residual soils are found in many parts of the world. Like other soils, they are used extensively in construction, being built upon and used as construction materials. The authors have extensive expertise with this type of ground engineering, and include a case study to illustrate the technical aspects.

Graduate students, researchers and professionals in soil and rock mechanics, and geotechnical engineers working in tropical regions will find this an invaluable resource. Book Description. Focused on tropical areas and their unique problems and issues, this work examines all aspects of residual soils engineering, including both theoretical and practical aspects.

This book gives the practitioner a thorough understanding of the characteristics of these soil types, their formation and their material properties.

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. His special area of interest is in the field of geotechnical and geological engineering, and slope engineering, and has authored and co-authored 18 books, edited 10 conference proceedings, and published more than journal and conference proceedings papers in the field of soil mechanics and foundation engineering.5/5(1).
