LIEQUEFACTION POTENTIAL MAP FOR CHARLESTON SOUTH CAROLINA

A probabilistic assessment of the liquefaction hazard in Charleston, South Carolina is presented. The method is based on the emprirical relationship between the standard penetration test resistance and the cyclic stress ratio required to cause liquefaction. The information on liquefaction susceptibility and opportunity is combined using a probabilistic model accounting for uncertainty in the SPT blow count value and Seed's liquefaction susceptibility model. Results are presented as a map showing zones of levels of risk of liquefaction.
