Abstract

In this paper 19 cases of river bank slides concerning lateral spread of liquefaction are summarized, some of them are discussed in detail. One of the cases was the lateral spread of liquefied sands by Liao River during Heichen Earthquake (1975, M=7.3). The width of sliding zone in direction perpendicular to the flow was around 500-600m. The second case was about an industrial area in Tianjing, one of the largest cities in China. The land sliding along a silted old course made many buildings cracked and even collapsed. The third case was on liquefaction along Dou River and Luan River. It showed that the influence of lateral spread might cover most parts of the area where the course had been changed frequently in the past. The paper provides some information on the influence range and conditions on occurrence of lateral spread.

Slides of River Banks Concerning Lateral Spread of Liquefaction

St. Louis, Missouri

In this paper 19 cases of river bank slides concerning lateral spread of liquefaction are summarized, some of them are discussed in detail. One of the cases was the lateral spread of liquefied sands by Liao River during Heichen Earthquake (1975, M=7.3). The width of sliding zone in direction perpendicular to the flow was around 500-600m. The second case was about an industrial area in Tianjing, one of the largest cities in China. The land sliding along a silted old course made many buildings cracked and even collapsed. The third case was on liquefaction along Dou River and Luan River.
