Abstract: Residual soils of andesite in the Kg. Awah area, Pahang, have been analysed for their physico-chemical properties. Results indicate that the andesitic soils are characterised by their predominantly clayey nature, high plasticities, generally low compacted densities, slightly acidic pore fluids, and intermediate dispersivity behaviour.

 

Abstrak: Tanah baki andesit di kawasan Kg. Awah, Pahang, telah diuji sifat fiziko-kimia. Hasil kajian menunjukkan bahawa tanah baki andesit dicirikan oleh sifat berlempung, keplastikan tinggi, ketumpatan pemadatan rendah, air liang sedikit berasid dan sifat dispersif perantaraan.
