Abstract

To study the mechanism of permanent ground displacement due to liquefaction, shaking table tests were conducted. Moreover, vane tests and cyclic torsional shear tests were carried out to measure the rate of decrease of the elastic modulus and the shear strength due to liquefaction. Based on these test results, the authors proposed a simplified procedure for the prediction of permanent ground displacement. Measures to counter permanent ground displacement were also discussed based on the analysis.
