Abstract

Four material constants included in the pore-pressure buildup equation for saturated sands under earthquake loadings are determined as functions of grain size, soil angularity, coefficient of uniformity, and void ratio. This would allow engineers to readily calculate pore-pressure buildup as a function of time, and hence assess the liquefaction potential, for a given soil without conducting cyclic tests.

Effect of Material Properties on Soil Liquefaction

St. Louis, Missouri

Four material constants included in the pore-pressure buildup equation for saturated sands under earthquake loadings are determined as functions of grain size, soil angularity, coefficient of uniformity, and void ratio. This would allow engineers to readily calculate pore-pressure buildup as a function of time, and hence assess the liquefaction potential, for a given soil without conducting cyclic tests.
