PIEZOMETER PERFORMANCE AT WILDLIFE LIQUEFACTION SITE, CALIFORNIA. DISCUSSION AND CLOSURE

A discussion of a paper with the aforementioned title by Youd and Holzer, published in this journal (Volume 120, Number 6, June 1994), is presented. Discussers Scott and Hushmand examine the instrumentation at the Wildlife site in Imperial Valley, California, where two earthquakes shook the area in November 1987. Four transducers at the site provided unusual data, which the authors initially explained as a result of delayed pore pressure response. Since then, however, the authors have found a mechanism proposed by Zeghal and Elgamal (1994) that better explains the behavior of the transducers. Scott and Hushmand provide comprehensive discussion that discounts the piezometer and its response at Imperial Valley. Discussion is followed by closure from the authors.
