Research on the properties of residual soils has been continuing in Brazil since the pioneering work by Vargas in 1953. A great number of earth dams built since then and the initiation of graduate courses since 1960 have increased the rate of in-depth studies on this theme. This contribution considers the more recent research on the properties of these soils, mainly shear strength parameters.
