Residual soils are weathering products of rocks that are commonly found under unsaturated conditions. The properties of residual soils are a function of the degree of weathering. A series of index properties, engineering properties, mercury porosimetry tests and scanning electron microscope (SEM) examinations were performed on residual soils from two major geological formations in Singapore. The results indicate that the variation in the index and engineering properties as well as… 

Characterization the geotechnical properties of a Malaysian granitic residual soil grade V

Residual soils are produced from weathering of rocks and commonly found in tropical humid areas. The geotechnical properties of residual soils are a function of the parent rock, the degree of

Analysis of slope stability on tropical residual soil

Tropical residual soil is a product of chemical weathering, thus its characteristics are dependent upon environmental factors such as parent rocks, climate, topography and age. This type of soil can

Influence of faults on alteration, mineralogy, and geotechnical behavior of granitic residual soils

Contact metamorphism and metasomatism are imposed on granitic rocks by late intrusions. This study shows the consequences of this phenomenon on the pedogenesis of granitic rocks and on the

The Shear Strength of Granite Weathered Soil Under Different Hydraulic Paths

At present, there is no clear understanding of the influence of differences in soil mineral composition, particle size grading, and hydraulic paths on the shear strength of unsaturated soil, and the

SLOPE STABILITY ANALYSIS OF LATERITIC SOILS IN CONSTRUCTION OF ROAD EMBANKMENTS (THE CASE OF NEJO-MENDI)

Embankments are key elements in the development of structures such as dams and roads in infrastructure. Residual soils are generally used as fills in the construction of embankments in areas where

Consolidated drained triaxial compression tests (CD) were conducted to determine the compression properties of remolded samples collected from hillslope in residual soil. The test results showed that

Effect of Drying-Wetting Cycles on Saturated Shear Strength of Undisturbed Residual Soils

Due to world-wide distributions and extensively used as construction materials, geotechnical engineers are interested in understanding the mechanical behavior of residual soils which are sometimes

STRENGTH PARAMETER SELECTION IN STABILITY ANALYSIS OF RESIDUAL SOIL NAILED WALLS

This paper investigates slope stability of soil nailed walls which are located on sites formed with mostly residual soils. Residual soils, forming from weathered rocks can be found in many parts of

Assessment of Quality of Some Laterites in Northeastern Nigeria by Multivariate Analysis of their Geotechnical Index Properties

The index properties of lateritic soils derived from sandstone, limestone, gneiss, granite, basalt, and migmatite in northeastern Nigeria were assessed for selecting the type with the best

Weathering Profile of Schistose Rock from Geotechnical and Geochemical Parameters at Okpe, Igarra Schist Belt in Edo State, Nigeria

This work focuses on the weathering profile study of Okpe Schistose Rock at the Igarra Schist Belt, Edo State, Nigeria. The aim is to understand the degree of weathering which is the removal of
