Abstract

An improved analytical method to calculate the likelihood of soil liquefaction is described. The method is based on an expanded list of case histories of liquefaction and no-liquefaction and employs earthquake magnitude and hypocentral distance to describe the intensity of shaking at a site. The new list of case histories is compiled from a complete re-evaluation of previously published case histories and field data observed in more recent earthquakes. Specific applications of the proposed procedure are described and an example analysis is presented.

Analysis for Liquefaction: Empirical Approach

St. Louis, Missouri

The method is based on an expanded list of case histories of liquefaction and no-liquefaction and employs earthquake magnitude and hypocentral distance to describe the intensity of shaking at a site. The new list of case histories is compiled from a complete re-evaluation of previously published case histories and field data observed in more recent earthquakes.
