Abstract

This paper reports the results of research undertaken to examine some of the important changes that occur in the geotechnical properties of argillaceous sediments with a well developed, pervasive fabric, under tropical weathering conditions. The change in the materials is often accompanied by mass movement activity and the geomorphological consequence is usually the development of badlands topography. It is suggested that by applying the critical state model, a greater consideration can be gained of the geotechnical response of the sediments to weathering
