Abstract

First, an empirical formula to predict the magnitude of permanent ground displacement is proposed based on the observed data at the past earthquake events. Next, a simplified procedure to estimate the failure probability of buried pipes is proposed, in which the model of non-linear beam supported by ground spring elements is used to calculate the strain in the pipe by following the response displacement method. Finally, a simplified method to obtain the probability considering failure modes expected to occur in the pipe is proposed and some numerical example showing the probability and discussions follow.

A Procedure to Assess the Stability of Buried Structures against Liquefaction-Induced Ground Deformations

St. Louis, Missouri
