Pumice materials are frequently encountered in many engineering projects in New Zealand. Because of their lightweight, highly crushable and compressible nature, they are problematic from an engineering and construction viewpoint. However, there is very little information on the liquefaction characteristics of pumice deposits and most empirical procedures available for evaluating the liquefaction potential of sands are derived from hard-grained (quartz) sands.

EVALUATING LIQUEFACTION POTENTIAL OF PUMICEOUS DEPOSITS THROUGH FIELD TESTING: CASE STUDY OF THE 1987 EDGECUMBE EARTHQUAKE Orense R; Asadi M; Stringer M; Pender M (New Zealand Society for Earthquake Engineering, 2020)Pumice materials, which are problematic from an engineering viewpoint, are widespread in the central part of the North Island. Considering the impacts of the 2010-2011 Christchurch earthquakes, a clear understanding of ...
