Soil Liquefaction in the East Bay During the Earthquake

Figure 28

Plots of soil-liquefaction potential from Arias intensity versus cyclic-stress-ratio method.

Assessment of soil-liquefaction potential from Arias intensity versus cyclic-stress ratio method. A, Arias intensity within soil column versus normalized 60-percent-hammer-efficiency blowcount for sites in the United States and Japan, with fines-content correction to equivalent "clean sand." B, Cyclic-stress ratio versus normalized 60-percent-hammer-efficiency blowcount for Loma Prieta study sites.
