LIQUEFACTION POTENTIAL EVALUATED FROM CYCLIC STRAIN-CONTROLLED PROPERTIES TESTS ON SANDS

A method for evaluating the liquefaction potential of loose to medium dense sands from strain-controlled triaxial properties tests was developed. It was found that liquefaction potentials determined from stress-controlled liquefaction tests and strain-controlled properties tests were in good agreement for medium dense sands. For the same material at the same density, values of modulus and liquefaction potential are significantly higher for specimens prepared using wet rodding methods than for specimens prepared using dry vibration methods. On the other hand there was no significant difference between damping values for samples prepared by either method. (A) /TRRL/
