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 ...

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 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 ...

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 ...

This paper presents new correlations for assessment of the likelihood of initiation (or “triggering”) of soil liquefaction. These new correlations eliminate several sources of bias intrinsic to previous, similar correlations, and provide greatly reduced overall ...

This paper will highlight a number of important recent and ongoing developments in soil liquefaction engineering, and will offer insights regarding research in progress, as well as suggestions regarding further advances needed.
