Abstract

Soil liquefaction is a major reason of failure of foundations of buildings and infrastructure during earthquake
due to loss of shear strength of soil. Liquefaction resistance prediction of soil is one of important aspect of
practicing geotechnical earthquake engineering. An attempt was made herein to evaluate liquefaction resistance
of saturated sand under varying cyclic frequencies and acceleration. The tests on saturated sand sample and
saturated sand with varying % fines (silt) sample were performed by Shake table. Results of experimental
studies shows, as increases base frequency and acceleration resulted increases liquefaction potential. The
variation in pore pressure is obtained for varying percentage of silt contents shows that time required for
achieving pore pressure value increases with increasing silt content.
