NZGS Geomechanics Lecture (Nelson)
Presented by Dr Misko Cubrinovski
The subject of this lecture are three important aspects in the engineering assessment of soil liquefaction, i.e. material characterization of liquefiable soils, in-situ state characterization of soils, and system response of liquefiable deposits. These aspects in the assessment are especially important in the evaluation of liquefiable soils other than uniform clean sands, such as silts, silty sands with non-plastic or low-plasticity fines, gravel-sand-silt mixtures, and interbedded deposits composed of liquefiable and non-liquefiable soils.
