A REVIEW OF THE BEHAVIOUR AND ENGINEERING PROPERTIES OF CARBONATE SOILS

This report reviews the nature and origins of carbonate soil deposits, and then discusses methods of classifying such soils. Data on their engineering behaviour is then presented, including shear strength properties, compressibility and consolidation characteristics, and their response to cyclic loading. (Author/TRRL)
