Abstract

A new laminar box constructed with aluminum frames of 24mm wide and 10mm thick for model shaking tests on liquefaction phenomenon of soft saturated sandy soil in centrifugal gravity field was manufactured. The box was designed to develop shear distortion in the soil unimpeded by a rigid-type container. Liquefaction tests were performed on horizontally laid soft saturated sand and obtained the same results as Tokimatsu and Yoshimi 1983.
