Abstract

A new practical method for evaluation of soil liquefaction by using the Cone Penetration Test (CPT) was proposed. The critical normalized cone resistance, (qcl)cr was presented in terms of cyclic stress ratio, τ/σ0' , and mean grain size of soils, D50. Based on our proposed CPT-based liquefaction assessing correlation, we presented the typical examples of the use and application of CPT to assess liquefaction potential of past earthquake as well as to verify the effectiveness of soil improvement counterrneasured to increase liquefaction resistance of soil.
