Abstract

The authors proposed a simple method to estimate liquefaction-induced deformation of grounds and structures. Adaptability of the method to the settlement of footings was studied. Centrifuge tests for the footing of transmission tower were selected to demonstrate the adaptability of the method. Analyses were carried out under the same conditions of the centrifuge tests. By comparing the analyzed results with the tested results, it was concluded that the effect of thickness of liquefied layer and soil density on the settlement of footing can be evaluated well by the simple method. Effect of countermeasures on the settlement of footing also could be evaluated well.
