Title: Infiltration characteristics of capillary barriers
Authors: Yang, Hong

Issue Date: 2002
Abstract: Rainfall-induced landslides often occur in residual soil slopes. In Singapore, about two-third of the land is covered by residual soils. Rainwater infiltration has been found to affect the pore-water pressure and the shear strength of the residual soils significantly. Many slope failures, during or after rainfalls, often occur in tropical residual soils.
