What happens when the loose sand is saturated ?

Soil liquefaction:
Significant loss of soil strength due to reduction in
effective confining stress as a result of pore pressure
increase
Liquefaction
 All liquefaction is dependent on generation of
conditions
What are the effects of liquefaction?

Working stress (CSR)

Soil resistance
The denser the sand,
the less potential of liquefaction

## The higher the density Dr,

The stronger the sand,
The less potential to liquefaction
Resistance against liquefaction is measured by using :
 SPT (Standard Penetration Test)
 CPT (Cone Penetration Test) CPT

When does liquefaction result in ground
surface damage?
Condition under which
ground surface
damaged will be
caused by liquefaction
Soil Improvement Techniques
By Dynanic Compaction
The denser the sand,
the less potential of liquefaction

N
Dr = sv in psi
1.7 (sv +10)

N
Dr = sv in t/m2
1.7 (1.42 sv +10)

## Requirement: Dr > 70%

Mitigation of Liquefaction Hazard

##  Alter – soil stabilization (by enhancing the strength,

density, and/or drainage characteristics of the soil):

## - Densify the liquefied soil

- Provide drainage for pore pressure dissipation
Recommendation of Liquefaction Remediation
It is recommended to use pile foundation for important
and heavy buildings

Ground surface

## Non liquefied layer

Liquefiable layer
