Abstract

A simplified method is herein presented to evaluate liquefaction risk, where we modified the form of liquefaction potential index suggested by Iwasaki, Tokida and others (1980, 1982). Based upon the investigations of structure damage induced by soil liquefaction during Tangshan earthquake, four categories for evaluating liquefaction risk and the principles of engineering treatment are proposed. Several typical liquefaction sites are analyzed by this method.

Liquefaction Risk Evaluation During Earthquakes

A simplified method is herein presented to evaluate liquefaction risk, where we modified the form of liquefaction potential index suggested by Iwasaki, Tokida and others (1980, 1982). Based upon the investigations of structure damage induced by soil liquefaction during Tangshan earthquake, four categories for evaluating liquefaction risk and the principles of engineering treatment are proposed. Several typical liquefaction sites are analyzed by this method.
