Research Grants & Projects

Evaluation of occurrence of soil liquefaction during earthquakes and its countermeasures
0062 (Japanese Only)
Project Year: 1995 - 2007
The liquefaction resistance of soils is known to be influenced by the degree of water saturation. We are aimed at incorporating the effects of the degree of saturation on the liquefaction resistance of soils and examining how the liquefaction resi...
