When water-saturated, mostly cohesion-less soil whose shear strength is reduced to zero due to pore water pressure produced by vibration during an earthquake causes soil to soil boil and such soil is liquefied. For more information about Soil Liquefaction see ...

Liquefaction is a state of water- saturated, mostly cohesion-less soil whose shear strength is reduced to zero due to pore water pressure produced by vibration during an earthquake. The soil starts behaving like a liquid. For more details on Soil ...

If you are a geotechnical engineer dealing with foundations, mechanics, statics and dynamics of soil; then you must be well aware of the earthquake history, pattern and nature. Geological study of such areas and history of any seismic activity within ...
