Soil liquefaction is a major concern for structures constructed with or on sandy soils. This paper describes the phenomena of soil liquefaction, reviews suitable definitions, and provides an update on methods to evaluate cyclic liquefaction using the cone penetration test (CPT). A method is described to estimate grain characteristics directly from the CPT and to incorporate this into one of the methods for evaluating resistance to cyclic loading. A worked example is also provided, illustrating… Expand
Evaluation of Flow Liquefaction and Liquefied Strength Using the Cone Penetration Test
Flow liquefaction is a major design issue for large soil structures such as mine tailings impoundments and earth dams. If a soil is strain softening in undrained shear and, hence, susceptible to flowExpand
Variation of CPTU parameters and liquefaction potential at a reclaimed land induced by dynamic compaction
This paper presents results of an extensive field investigation of a hydraulic-filled site with cone penetration testing before and after ground improvement by dynamic compaction. The focus of theExpand
