Volume 17, Issue 3
  • ISSN : 1021-2000



This article discusses the application of the information currently available on the land maps and soil types for South Africa and their accompanying material data, originally compiled to provide information for agricultural purposes, as a costeffective preliminary indicator of the common problem soils for civil engineers. Such information is extremely useful for the planning, feasibility and preliminary design stages of road construction and other civil engineering projects.
