Methods of Reducing Soil Liquefaction

It is extremely difficult and impractical to prevent liquefaction of soil in the field when the susceptible zone extends to a large depth. It is generally best not to construct buildings and other structures at sites prone to liquefaction. Because the remediation of the liquefaction hazard is quite expensive, it…continue reading →

Effects of Soil Liquefaction on Structures

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 original article about Soil Liquefaction.The drastic and sever damaging effects of…continue reading →

Types of Soil Liquefaction

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 Liquefaction Please refer to Original Article about Soil Liquefaction.Following are the…continue reading →

Sand Boils due to Liquefaction

Liquefaction produces so many drastic effects and damages to the structures and foundations build over its effected soil. The buildings and structures whose foundations are on soil affected by liquefaction will experience a sudden loss of support which will result in drastic and irregular settlement of the building causing cracking…continue reading →

Causes of Liquefaction of Soil

You might have been to a beach or near a river bank, have you ever noticed the cohesion-less sands there? I am currently working in a project which is in a mountain range with river crossing through and is actually construction of a dam, during my travelling so many timesI…continue reading →
