Abstract

There are many uncertain factors influencing the field sand liquefaction induced by earthquake, therefore, the predictions of available methods are usually unsatisfactory. In this paper, a new way is developed, i.e., according to the available field sand liquefaction data, the influencing factors are optimized by optimum seeking method, then the prediction is made on the optimized results. By this method, 20 field cases are predicted and the correct rate is 95%. It proves that the suggested method is effective and feasible.

Prediction of Field Sand Liquefaction Caused by Earthquake by Optimum Seeking Method

St. Louis, Missouri

There are many uncertain factors influencing the field sand liquefaction induced by earthquake, therefore, the predictions of available methods are usually unsatisfactory. In this paper, a new way is developed, i.e., according to the available field sand liquefaction data, the influencing factors are optimized by optimum seeking method, then the prediction is made on the optimized results. By this method, 20 field cases are predicted and the correct rate is 95%. It proves that the suggested method is effective and feasible.
