Abstract

Dynamic properties of subsurface soils at the site of a proposed nuclear power plant were determined through extensive field and laboratory tests. The liquefaction potential of the granular soils underlying the site were obtained by using field data obtained from both standard penetration resistance and cone penetration tests as well as from laboratory data obtained from cyclic triaxial compression tests. The analyses showed that comparable factors of safety may be obtained from both field and laboratory test data.

Liquefaction Potential of Silty Sand Site

Dynamic properties of subsurface soils at the site of a proposed nuclear power plant were determined through extensive field and laboratory tests. The liquefaction potential of the granular soils underlying the site were obtained by using field data obtained from both standard penetration resistance and cone penetration tests as well as from laboratory data obtained from cyclic triaxial compression tests. The analyses showed that comparable factors of safety may be obtained from both field and laboratory test data.
