Abstract

This paper presents the procedure and results of soil column response (ground response) and liquefaction analyses performed for a site located in St. Charles, Missouri. Synthetic earthquake time histories were developed since recorded strong ground motion data for Central United States are not available. For ground response analysis, synthetic earthquake time histories and ground motions from two earthquakes in Canada were used. Synthetic time histories were generated using attenuation relationships for Central and Eastern United States. Liquefaction analysis was performed using the widely used simplified procedure which involves comparison of Cyclic Stress Ratio (CSR) and Cyclic Resistance Ratio (CRR).
