A study of the resistance of liquefaction of three medium sands of varying gradations (or coefficients of uniformity) is reported. In order to isolate the effect of the coefficient of uniformity alone, the three sands, had identical mean grain size, D sub 50, linear grain-size-distribution curves and identical mineralogy. Maintaining a constant D sub 50 for all gradations ensured that membrane penetration effects on undrained results would not differ among different gradations.
