Liquefaction is one of the major causes of earthquake damage. During our scenario earthquake, much of Salt Lake Valley and nearby areas has a potential for large lateral (possibly greater than 1 foot) and vertical (possibly greater than 8 inches) liquefaction-induced ground displacements.

      CiteSeerX - Document Details (Isaac Councill, Lee Giles, Pradeep Teregowda): found that liquefaction might be a hazard in low-lying parts of the Las Vegas valley where soils are sandy and the water table is high. Historic water table levels have fluctuated significantly due to human activity. In the central Las Vegas area, an extensive perched water table has developed. The New Madrid Seismic Zone (/ ˈ m æ d r ɪ d /), sometimes called the New Madrid Fault Line, is a major seismic zone and a prolific source of intraplate earthquakes (earthquakes within a tectonic plate) in the southern and midwestern United States, stretching to the southwest from New Madrid, Missouri.. The New Madrid fault system was responsible for the –12 New Madrid .

In additional, the potential for basin amplification (Su et al., ) of ground motion from significant seismic sources km ( mi.) from the valley (Sawyer et al., ) could provide the mechanism to cause liquefaction in the Size: KB.

Liquefaction potential index (IL) was developed by Iwasaki et al. in to predict the potential of liquefaction to cause foundation damage at a site. The index attempted to provide a measure of the severity of liquefaction, and according to its devel-oper, liquefaction risk is very high if IL > 15, and liquefaction risk is low if IL ≤ 5.

The key part of the liquefaction hazard analysis that remained to be investigated in the subject study is the survey of potentially liquefiable soils.

This study provided opportunity for a UNLV student to work with faculty and practitioners to develop a more comprehensive understanding of the liquefaction potential in Las Vegas valley. Soil liquefaction occurs when a saturated or partially saturated soil substantially loses strength and stiffness in response to an applied stress such as shaking during an earthquake or other sudden change in stress condition, in which material that is ordinarily a solid behaves like a liquid.

In soil mechanics, the term "liquefied" was first used by Allen Hazen in reference to the Unfortunately, this book can't be printed from the OpenBook. If you need to print pages from this book, we recommend downloading it as a PDF.

High liquefaction potential means that there is a 50% probability of having an earthquake within a year period that will be strong enough to cause.Liquefaction potential: simplified empirical analysis. Three parameters are needed to assess liquefaction potential using the simplified empirical method: a) shear velocity V s; b) the cyclic stress ratio (CSR) and c) the capacity of the soil to resist liquefaction, expressed in terms of the cyclic resistance ratio (CRR).Shear wave velocity is proportional to soil stiffness and in the Cited by: 2.This book presents methodologies for assessment of liquefaction potential and remedial measures to mitigate liquefaction for reclaimed land.

These methodologies are based on continuous research and decades of experience in design and construction of port facilities in Japan, where liquefaction often poses a serious problem in design and Author: Port and Harbour Research Institute.
