  4. Handbook of Tropical Residual Soils Engineering

    Edited by Bujang B.K. Huat, David G. Toll, Arun Prasad

    Residual soils are found in many parts of the world. Like other soils, they are used extensively in construction, either to build upon, or as construction material. They are formed when the rate of rock weathering is more rapid than transportation of the weathered particles by e.g., water, gravity...
