Abstract: In this paper, probabilistic methods developed through logistic regression analyses of field (SPT and CPT) data and those through a newly developed mapping function approach are evaluated and compared. Well-documented cases by U.S. Geological Survey are used in the evaluation and comparison. The results provide a basis for risk-based decisions regarding liquefaction potential.
