Arias Intensity Assessment of Liquefaction Test Sites on the East Side of San Francisco Bay Affected by the Loma Prieta, California, Earthquake of 17 October 1989

Table 1

Table of parameters used in liquefaction-susceptibility analyses.

Representative values of parameters used in liquefaction-susceptibility analyses for critical soil layers at east bay study sites (see Figures 1, 2, 3, and 4, for locations of boreholes. PGA, peak ground acceleration; qc1, normalized cone-penetration resistance; (N1)60, 60%-hammer-efficiency normalized standard penetration resistance; CSR, cyclic stress Ratio; Ihb, Arias intensity; fc fines content; (N1)60, fc fines content corrected SPT-resistance).
