DEGREE OF WEATHERING IN THE IDENTIFICATION OF LATERITE MATERIALS FOR ENGINEERING PURPOSES--A REVIEW

The author presents information intended for the identification and evaluation of all grades of laterite materials for engineering purposes. The first part of the article summarises information on the significant genetic characteristics which appear to cause the deviation of the behaviour of laterite materials from expected properties. The second part summarises information on the identification of significant geotechnical properties of various grades and genetic groups of laterite materials. The engineering behaviour of laterite materials forms the third part of the article. /TRRL/
