Liquefaction Potential of Native Ground in West Kobe, Japan by the Spectral Analysis of Surface Waves (SASW) Method

Figure 5

Diagram of cyclic stress ratio versus normalized shear wave velocity.

Cyclic stress ratio versus normalized shear wave velocity for the Wadamisaki district sites. The data fall in a high CSR area populated with no prior data. Solid points are the mean velocities of the liquefied layer. Open circles are non-liquefied sites. Ellipses define 1 standard deviation values.
