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 and wind, which results in a large share of the soi

Focused on tropical areas and their unique problems and issues, this work examines all aspects of residual soils engineering, including both theoretical and practical aspects. This book gives the practitioner a thorough understanding of the characteristics of these soil types, their formation and their material properties, while guidelines on application, stabilization and assessment, reveal how this knowledge can be used in the field. The authors have extensive expertise with this type of ground engineering, and include a case study to illustrate the technical aspects. Graduate students, researchers and professionals in soil and rock mechanics, and geotechnical engineers working in tropical regions will find this an invaluable resource.

This CD-ROM is based upon a series of interactive kiosks that The Smithsonian Institution has developed to enhance understanding of their geology exhibits. The CD-ROM features over $1 million in state-of-the-art animations produced by Engineering Animations, Inc. On this interactive CD-ROM, students can learn about geology by building their own volcano, view live earthquake footage, delve into a geyser, or experience many other geological phenomena with the click of a mouse. The CD-ROM will provide interactive experiences, outstanding animations, interactive quizzing, and an Internet connection tied to our web site with links to related geologic resources. Icons are included in the text of Plummer/McGeary/Carlson: "Physical Geology, Eighth Edition Update and McGeary et al: "Physical Geology: Earth Revealed, Fourth Edition that point to relevant points of interest on "Journey Through Geology CD-ROM.
