Critical Review on the Parameters Influencing Liquefaction of Soils

Abstract

Liquefaction of soils is associated with the loss of shear strength due to an increase in pore water pressure. It causes extensive damages to buildings and infrastructures during earthquakes. It is important to know the parameters influencing liquefaction of soil in order to understand the liquefaction phenomenon clearly. Past studies clearly indicate that there are different parameters that would influence the liquefaction of soils. Therefore, the present study purports to critically review the findings reported in the literature to reveal the influence of different parameters on liquefaction of soils. The critical evaluation brings out the anomalies associated with the influence of some of the parameters on the liquefaction. The study also indicates the need of further experimental investigations regarding few factors’ influence on liquefaction of soil.
