Strength characteristics and liquefaction potential of sandy and silty soils subject to earthquake loading

Abstract:

The Liquefaction phenomenon of these soils exposed to earthquake loading is being studied using the new cyclic hollow cylinder apparatus. A relationship is being sought between the different conditions influencing the soil behaviour for implementation of the findings in a risk management procedure.
