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 ...

Tectonic deformation from the 2010 Maule (Chile) Mw 8.8 earthquakeincluded both uplift and subsidence along about 470 km of the central Chilean coast. In the south, deformation included as much as 3 m of uplift of the Arauco Peninsula, which produced emergent ...

A field investigation was performed to retest liquefaction and nonliquefaction sitesfrom the 1976 Tangshan earthquake in China.These sites were carefully investigated in 1978 and 1979 by using standard penetration test (SPT) and cone penetration test (CPT) ...

This research develops a first‐order estimate of the large strain dynamic response of peaty organic soils, with the goal of improving system reliability estimates of the Bay Delta levee network.

This research involves shake table testing of 1g scale models that mimic the coupled seismic response of a structure on a shallow mat foundation and the foundation soil (termed soil-foundation-structure-interaction or SFSI).

The authors have presented an excellent study that provides the­oretical and empirical justification for the use of the Newmark sliding-block method in estimating displacements of lateral spreads using residual strength values. The discussers believe that ...

This paper presents a complete methodology for both probabilistic and deterministic assessment of seismic soil liquefaction triggering potential based on the cone penetration test CPT. A comprehensive worldwide set of CPT-based liquefaction field case histories ...

Effective overburden stress can have a significant influence on cone penetration test CPT measurements. This influence can lead to an incorrect assessment of soil strength/resistance for such purposes as liquefaction triggering analysis. For an accurate measurement ...

This paper describes the retesting of liquefaction and nonliquefaction field case histories in the Imperial Valley using the electric cone penetration test (CPT). Subsurface testing of the River Park and Heber Road sites first occurred following the 1979 Imperial ...

The 2002 M7.9 Denali fault earthquake resulted in 340 km of ruptures along three separate faults, causing widespread liquefaction in the fluvial deposits of the alpine valleys of the Alaska Range and eastern lowlands of the Tanana River. Areas affected by liquefaction ...
