Shake Table Testing in Studying Liquefaction-Induced Shallow Foundation Settlement and Mitigation Measures

Ramin Motamed, Ph.D., PE, will present his research that examines the efficacy of different remedial measures, including helical piles, lowering the ground water level, and installing sheet piles in mitigating liquefaction-induced settlement of shallow rigid foundations. The presented results are based on an extensive series of shaking table model tests conducted at large and moderate scale levels. The models were based on similar subsurface ground conditions observed in recent earthquakes where shallow liquefiable soil layers imposed significant damage to the building foundations.
