Advances in Soil Liquefaction Engineering (Hardback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


This book describes recent developments in soil liquefaction engineering and introduces more appropriate procedures than the current ones to evaluate triggering and consequences of soil liquefaction during earthquakes. The topics therefore cover all aspects of soil behaviour following liquefaction during earthquakes. The contents start with new approaches and new findings on characterisation of liquefaction resistance and undrained shear strength of fully saturated, partially saturated, and unsaturated sand, which are fully based on laboratory tests. New approaches and findings are then described on the use of in situ sounding tests for characterising triggering and consequences of soil liquefaction, including post-liquefaction settlement, stability against flow slide, and lateral spreading. All the topics are accompanied by illustrative case history data from recent major earthquakes in Japan. The new simple modelling of rapid landslide is also introduced together with recent case histories.

Yoshimichi Tsukamoto graduated from The University of Tokyo in 1990, and received his Ph.D. from the University of Cambridge in 1995. He then moved to the Tokyo University of Science as research associate in 1995, where he became full professor in 2012. Kenji Ishihara is a professor emeritus of The University of Tokyo, where he had spent his research career focusing on the subject of soil liquefaction in geotechnical engineering until his retirement there in 1995. He then moved to the Tokyo University of Science as a professor in 1995 and continued his research career with Yoshimichi Tsukamoto, the co-author of this book. He then moved to Chuo University as professor in 2001. The two authors have devoted their research careers mainly to the subject of soil liquefaction during the period from 1995 to date. They have made great developments and published many technical papers, including field case history studies from the recent major earthquakes in Japan.
