This technical note presents a new method to transport liquefiable soils from the investtigation site to the laboratory. The development of this method resulted from research on liquefiable soils from the Imperial Valley, CA. This method is based upon the application of a slight vacuum on the pore water of the soil. The vacuum decreases the pore pressure, and therefore increases the effective confining stress. Sample recovery and integrity were compared wih experiences of others. Comparisons… CONTINUE READING
