  • Soil Liquefaction

    A Critical State Approach, Second Edition

    By Mike Jefferies, Ken Been

    A Rigorous and Definitive Guide to Soil Liquefaction Soil liquefaction occurs when soil loses much of its strength or stiffness for a time—usually a few minutes or less—and which may then cause structural failure, financial loss, and even death. It can occur during earthquakes, from static loading…
