The project characterise the soil properties of the residual soils of Singapore and to study the mechanism of rainfall-induced slope failures. The project consisted of field and laboratory investigations to establish the shear strength and permeability characteristics of selected residual soils, field instrumentation to study matric suction profiles in a typical residual soil slope, field reconnaissance of several rainfall-induced landslides, and a numerical back analysis of a failed slope.
