Abstract

Developments in the analysis and assessment of liquefaction potential since 1976 are critically reviewed. The major development is the emergence of dynamic effective stress analysis and its gradual introduction into practice. Other topics reviewed include constant volume cyclic simple shear testing, quantitative analysis of the effects of system compliance on the results of cyclic loading tests, probabilistic methods and the effects of overconsolidated, previous stress history, static shear stresses and geological aging on liquefaction potential.

Liquefaction Potential: Developments Since 1976

St. Louis, Missouri

Developments in the analysis and assessment of liquefaction potential since 1976 are critically reviewed. The major development is the emergence of dynamic effective stress analysis and its gradual introduction into practice. Other topics reviewed include constant volume cyclic simple shear testing, quantitative analysis of the effects of system compliance on the results of cyclic loading tests, probabilistic methods and the effects of overconsolidated, previous stress history, static shear stresses and geological aging on liquefaction potential.
