The revised BS 6031 (and earlier documents such as the 2001 manual of BRE Centre for Ground Engineering and Remediation) lack in explaining long-term ground movements in compacted earthworks, particularly when arisings from nearby cuttings are used as fill materials. Unexplained settlements include sudden and long-term subsidence particularly in transient loading environments, when fills are built from sand/silts with small clay inclusions, as well as seasonal subsidence in fills with <20% carbonates.
