<p>One of the most devastating effects of earthquakes in the seismic regions is liquefaction. Many research works have been done in this field and at present different methods are available for the liquefaction potential assessment. The liquefaction is a very ...

<p>The results of this study show that failure of the examined caisson quay wall is induced by the deformation of the foundation and backfill soils. For all the analyzed remedial methods, improving the top 10 to 15 m of foundation soil under the wall and first ...

<p>During severe earthquake shaking, soil liquefaction is a major concern for structures constructed on saturated loose sandy soils. A large number of civil engineering structures were damaged due to liquefaction during huge recent earthquakes in Christchurch. ...

<p>A site in Ch&acirc;teauguay, south of Montr&eacute;al, Qu&eacute;bec, Canada, was investigated as part of the design of a significant infrastructure project. A loose marine silt layer present at the site was found to be susceptible to liquefaction using ...

Liquefaction is a phenomenon in which the shear strength of the soil dramatically is reduced or eliminated in a short time. This phenomenon occures in non-cohesive, saturation and sleazy soils that have been subjected to ground motions and as a result earthquake ...

<p>Ottawa sand specimens premixed with 0, 3, and 5% bentonite by dry mass of sand were tested under undrained static and cyclic loading to investigate the effects of bentonite on the static and cyclic shear strength of the sand. The results show that allowing ...

This paper presents the development of new generalized correlationsfor Vs1-based evaluation of seismically-induced soil liquefaction. Probabilistic models for initiation of soil liquefaction are developedwithin a Bayesian model framework and structural reliability ...

The 4 September 2010 Darfield and 22 February 2011 Christchurch earthquakes caused significant damage to Christchurch and surrounding suburbs as a result of the widespread liquefaction and lateral spreading that occurred. Ground surveying-based field investigations ...

<p>Approaches that are widely used to characterize propensity of soils to liquefaction are mainly of empirical type. The potential of liquefaction is assessed by using correlation formulas that are based on field tests such as the standard and the cone penetration ...
