Abstract

Soils in hilly or mountainous areas are normally divided into two types: in situ weathered soils and transported soils. Table A3.1 provides a simplified classification and description of the common soils encountered in the humid tropics and subtropics and their engineering behaviour, based mainly on Fookes (1997).
