Abstract: Residual soils of serpentinite in the Kuala Pilah area, Negeri Sembilan, have been analysed for their physicochemical properties. Results indicate that the serpentinite soils are characterised by their predominantly clayey nature, high plasticities, generally low compacted densities, slightly acidic pore fluids, and non-dispersive nature.

 

Abstrak: Tanah baki serpentinit di kawasan Kuala Pilah, Negeri Sembilan, telah diuji sifat fiziko-kimianya. Hasil kajian menunjukkan bahawa tanah baki serpentinit dicirikan oleh sifat berlempung, keplastikan tinggi, ketumpatan pemadatan rendah, air liang sedikit berasid dan sifat tidak dispersif.
