Part of: Lifeline Earthquake Engineering


Recent liquefaction hazard studies have made use of relationships developed to provide direct estimates of liquefaction displacements interms of liquefaction susceptibility index (LSI). Utilization of LSI information for a proposed gas transmission pipeline route is presented. The discussion presented here focusses on the considerable reliance on engineering judgement still required to translate LSI values into rational design quantities.
