Liquefaction Resistance of Partially Saturated Christchurch Soils
Past field investigations on Christchurch soil deposits show that, in some locations, the top part of the deposit is partially saturated at 1.0 m, or larger depths below the ground water table. Also, simplified methods for liquefaction assessment predicts moderate-to-severe liquefaction over large areas of Christchurch where no liquefaction manifestation was observed (Maurer et al. 2014). Therefore, this research aims to establish Vp-based filed procedure for quantification of soil saturation in-situ and evaluate liquefaction resistance of partially saturated Christchurch soils.
