Nadarajah Ravichandran and Brian Machmer

The purpose of this submission is to educate the public about the impact of earthquakes to the geotechnical and other structures that are supported on the earth’s surface through structural foundations.

Liquefaction by Nadarajah Ravichandran and Brian Machmer

When the saturated loose sand is subjected to an earthquake shaking, the soil micro-structure collapses and the sand loses its load carrying capacity. This phenomenon is called soil liquefaction which is one of the most important research topics in the field of geotechnical earthquake engineering. The geotechnical engineering faculties at the Civil Engineering department at Clemson University are studying the effect of liquefaction using experimental, analytical and numerical methods. In addition to the West coast states such as California, South Carolina and Missouri are also earthquake prone areas in this country.
