LANDSLIDES: INVESTIGATION AND MITIGATION. CHAPTER 19 - RESIDUAL SOILS
In this chapter general characteristics of residual soils are considered and illustrated with examples drawn from Brazil, Hong Kong, and North Carolina. These examples demonstrate the regional differences in residual soils and some of the similarities of the factors leading to slope instability in residual soils. Deere and Patton's (1971) residual soil profile classification system is used, although it is recognized that other systems, such as the classification system developed by the Geological Society of London working party in 1990, may work better in some regions.
Special Report 247 is also available in hardcover (ISBN 0-309-06151-2).
