CENTRIFUGE MODELING OF LIQUEFACTION REMEDIATION AT BRIDGE SITES

This report describes the completion of a new major centrifuge based earthquake simulation facility and a series of model tests that were conducted using the facility. The model tests used centrifuge modeling to investigate remediation of liquefaction at a bridge site. The tests were designed to help evaluate the extent of soil improvement required to mitigate the consequences of liquefaction.
