Collapsing soil hazards

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The large number of studies undertaken worldwide to identify and predict the distribution of collapsing soil suggests that their presence in geologic and man-made materials is more common than originally presumed (this point is set forth in Derbyshire et al., 1995). There has been much debate between the soil scientists, geologists, geomorphologists, and geotechnical engineers on definition of collapsible soils. It is expected that with continued discussion between these academic disciplines, along with additional characterization studies of soils prone to collapse, a comprehensive criteria for identifying collapsible soils will assist local- and regional-based practitioners in determination and mitigating their hazards.
