Abstract

In this paper the liquefiable subsoils are divided into two groups: type of liquefiable supporting layer and type of liquefiable underlayer. Based on the observed subsidence data and general tendency got from finite element analysis, an empirical formula for evaluation of subsidences of type of liquefiable supporting layer is suggested. Several important factors' such as earthquake intensity' contact pressure at foundation bottom' and relative density of liquefiable soil are involved in this formula. So the formula seems credible to a certain extent.

An Empirical Formula for Evaluation of Buildings Settlements Due to Earthquake Liquefaction

St. Louis, Missouri

Based on the observed subsidence data and general tendency got from finite element analysis, an empirical formula for evaluation of subsidences of type of liquefiable supporting layer is suggested. Several important factors' such as earthquake intensity' contact pressure at foundation bottom' and relative density of liquefiable soil are involved in this formula. So the formula seems credible to a certain extent.
