Abstract

During Bhuj earthquake of 2001, certain distinct phenomenon in coastal saturated granular deposits were observed causing extensive distress to Adani Port facilities. An attempt is made to analyse the root cause by examining nature and properties of earthquake energy, geometry of earth and the origin of energy and propagation of waves, including excess pore water pressure contributed by Pwave. Although pile raft system were less damaged due to liquefaction, the tests showed extensive loss of load capacity. These aspects are presented in this paper.

Nature and Properties of Earthquake Energy and Waves and their Contribution to Liquefaction Aspects at Adani Port During 2001 Bhuj Earth Quake

New York, New York

During Bhuj earthquake of 2001, certain distinct phenomenon in coastal saturated granular deposits were observed causing extensive distress to Adani Port facilities. An attempt is made to analyse the root cause by examining nature and properties of earthquake energy, geometry of earth and the origin of energy and propagation of waves, including excess pore water pressure contributed by Pwave. Although pile raft system were less damaged due to liquefaction, the tests showed extensive loss of load capacity. These aspects are presented in this paper.
