Introduction

新皇冠体育appLiquefaction flow slides are one of the most catastrophic forms of ground failure. Flow failures often result in massive lateral and vertical movements of soil, occasionally for hundreds of meters laterally. While most commonly observed during earthquakes as a result of seismically induced liquefaction, flow failures also have occurred as a result of non-seismic (static) loading, displacements (i.e., shear strains) induced by global instability or creep, and dynamic loading. These failures are driven by static shear stresses that exceed the available shear resistance in the soil after the soil liquefies. The available shear resistance after the soil liquefies, or residual shear strength of the liquefied soil, often is only a fraction of the drained shear strength of the soil. Despite the importance of the residual shear...
