Abstract

Sites within the area affected by liquefaction due to the 22 April 1991 Limón-Telire earthquake, have been investigated in order to compare the results of some empirical methods with the incidents observed during the earthquake. The purpose of this comparison was to suggest a suitable method to be used when assessing the risk for liquefaction in Costa Rica in the future.
