The practice of geotechnical engineering in tropical climate regions must consider the use of unsaturated soil concepts. However, these concepts must also take into account the specific behavior traits of tropical soils, particularly those related to soil aggregation, pore structure, and mineralogy. This paper will initially present considerations on th...

Ultrasonic longitudinal wave velocity (Vp) and durability are characteristics largely determined in geotechnical evaluations. These properties are useful in the analysis of weathered rocks because they usually have good relationships with physical and mechanical properties of rocks. Additionally, the tests to obtain these parameters are easy to perform. However,...
