Abstract

A method for evaluating the soil parameters required for effective stress analyses of the earthquake liquefaction potential of saturated sands is described. By means of parametric studies, it is demonstrated that the drained volume change and rebound constants required, may be backfitted to match a given field liquefaction strength curve. By means of this technique, fully coupled effective stress response analyses and site liquefaction evaluations can become a more routine engineering tool.

A Parametric Study of an Effective Stress Liquefaction Model

St. Louis, Missouri

A method for evaluating the soil parameters required for effective stress analyses of the earthquake liquefaction potential of saturated sands is described. By means of parametric studies, it is demonstrated that the drained volume change and rebound constants required, may be backfitted to match a given field liquefaction strength curve. By means of this technique, fully coupled effective stress response analyses and site liquefaction evaluations can become a more routine engineering tool.
