Abstract

Significant developments in procedures for evaluating liquefaction potential and the post-liquefaction behaviour of earth structures are reviewed for the period 1981-1991. Particular attention is paid to the re-valuation of the liquefaction induced slide in the San Fernando Dam following the 1971 earthquake. The findings of this study have had a major impact on engineering practice.

Assessment of Liquefaction Potential and Post-Liquefaction Behavior of Earth Structures: Developments 1981-1991

St. Louis, Missouri

Significant developments in procedures for evaluating liquefaction potential and the post-liquefaction behaviour of earth structures are reviewed for the period 1981-1991. Particular attention is paid to the re-valuation of the liquefaction induced slide in the San Fernando Dam following the 1971 earthquake. The findings of this study have had a major impact on engineering practice.
