A New Probabilistic Approach to Liquefaction Susceptibility and Triggering in CPT-Compatible Soils (Live Webinar)

Kevin Franke, Ph.D., PE

In this webinar, Dr. Kevin Franke, PE, will present a new probabilistic procedure to assess liquefaction susceptibility and triggering for CPT-compatible soils. It eliminates the need for fines content adjustment, identifies a threshold for fine-grained soils not susceptible to liquefaction, and differentiates the liquefaction resistance of clean sands with varying mineralogy and compressibility. However, it may overpredict liquefaction-induced settlements if clean-sand volumetric strain models are inappropriately applied to clayey soils. Practical guidance is provided for handling clayey soils predicted to "liquefy."

Keller North America provides a wide range of geotechnical engineering and construction services to improve soils in place and to both construct new and rehabilitate foundations. The techniques that will be discussed include Compaction & Jet Grouting, Earth Retention and Shoring, Vibro Compaction & Replacement, Micropiles, Soil Mixing for Deep Basement Excavations, and Pile Driving. Within our range of services, a Ground Modification solution is generally available for the toughest subsurface conditions.
