Session Start Date

5-6-1984

Abstract

Field evidence concerning soil liquefaction is reviewed and a number of case studies are summarized. Examples of the use of case studies in developing an understanding of the liquefaction phenomenon, both on level ground due to earthquake shaking and in slopes due to earthquake and static stress applications are presented.

The Role of Case Studies in the Evaluation of Soil Liquefaction Potential

Field evidence concerning soil liquefaction is reviewed and a number of case studies are summarized. Examples of the use of case studies in developing an understanding of the liquefaction phenomenon, both on level ground due to earthquake shaking and in slopes due to earthquake and static stress applications are presented.
