      Geotechnical Engineering in Residual Soils digs deep to help enrich the reader's knowledge on the subject of soils--in particular, residual soils--as they pertain to engineering. Appearing mostly in underdeveloped parts of the United States and tropical countries, these soils are playing an increasingly important role in building designs as /5(3). Wiley has long held a pre-eminent position as a publisher of books on geotechnical engineering, with a particular strength in soil behavior and soil mechanics, at both the academic and professional level. This reference will be the first book focused entirely on the unique engineering properties of residual soil. Given the predominance of residual soils in the under-developed parts of the.

Unsaturated soil mechanics is only one aspect of a continuous range of soil mechanics studies that extends from the rheology of high water content soil slurries to the mechanics of soft soils, to stiff saturated soils, to unsaturated soils, and, at the far end of the range, to dry soils.   The soils that hold its position of their formation, without transporting, just above their parent rock are called residual or sedentary al soils show considerable variation of engineering properties form top layer to bottom layer.

Residual soils are found in many parts of the world and are used extensively as construction materials for roads, embankments and dams, and to support the foundations of buildings, bridges and load-bearing pavements.

The characteristics and engineering properties of residual soils can differ significantly from those of the more familiar transported soils. The definition of a residual soil varies from country to country, but a reasonably general definition would be: “A residual soil is a soil-like material derived from the in situ weathering and decomposition of rock or rock fragments which has not been transported from its original location’’.Cited by: 4.
