Abstract

An attempt was made to predict the time history of the lateral displacement of ground that liquefied due to earthquakes. The study was initiated by model tests to examine the nature of liquefied sand. The knowledge thus obtained was combined with the theory of Lagrangean equation of motion in order to develop a method of prediction. Comparison was then made between prediction and observation.

Shaking Table Tests on Transient Flow of Liquefied Ground
