Key factors in the liquefaction-induced damage to buildings and infrastructure in Christchurch: Preliminary findings (2014)
PublisherUniversity of Canterbury. Civil and Natural Resources Engineering
The paper presents preliminary findings from comprehensive research studies on the liquefaction-induced damage to buildings and infrastructure in Christchurch during the 2010-2011 Canterbury earthquakes. It identifies key factors and mechanisms of damage to road bridges, shallow foundations of CBD buildings and buried pipelines, and highlights the implications of the findings for the seismic analysis and design of these structures.
