VARIABILITY IN THE PHYSICAL AND TECHNICAL PROPERTIES OF ROCKS DUE TO METEORIC WEATHERING PROCESSES

THE VARIATION IN THE CHARACTERISTICS OF DIFFERENT TYPES OF ROCKS (CLAYEY ROCKS, METAMORPHIC AND VOLCANIC ROCKS) SUBJECED TO METEORIC WEATHERING IS STUDIED. APART FROM THE ZONING OF THE WEATHERED LAYER, AN INVESTIGATION IS CONDUCTED INTO THE VARIATIONS IN THE MECHANICAL AND PHYSICO-CHEMICAL PROPERTIES OF THE SOIL IN THIS LAYER; THIS ENABLES THE WEATHERING PROCESSES AND THEIR LAWS TO BE DEFINED. THIS ANALYSIS SHOULD BE USEFUL IN THE FORECAST OF SLOPE STABILITY AND PROPERTIES OF WEATHERED MATERIALS. /TRRL/
