Abstract

A method of evaluating liquefaction potential of sand by Static Cone Penetration Test (CPT) was firstly developed basing on the field tests over Tangshan earthquake area and then confirmed by the test result in Haicheng earthquake. However, it showed considerable deviations when the method was used over Lutai area. The author holds that this outcome is mainly due to the difference between the soil characteristics of Lutai and Tangshan, i.e.. the former contains much more fine particles than the latter. Thus the method should be modified according to the fine particles content of the soil. A preliminary method of modification is herein presented.

Influence of Fines on Evaluating Liquefaction of Sand by CPT

St. Louis, Missouri

A method of evaluating liquefaction potential of sand by Static Cone Penetration Test (CPT) was firstly developed basing on the field tests over Tangshan earthquake area and then confirmed by the test result in Haicheng earthquake.
