During the Niigata earthquake of June 16, 1964, extensive damage to engineering structures occurred as a result of liquefaction of the sandy soil on which they were supported. The results of field investigations conducted by Japanese engineers are presented, leading to conclusions concerning the variation of relative density of the sand with depth in regions where liquefaction did and did not occur. An analysis is then proposed, using computations of the time-history of shear stresses likely to… CONTINUE READING
