Abstract

This report describes the evaluation of the potential of saturated deposits of cohesionless soil in downtown San Francisco for initial liquefaction due to seismically induced pore pressures. The condition of initial liquefaction, or the zero effective stress state, was evaluated because it provides the best available index for damage due to seismically induced pore pressures. Liquefaction potential was evaluated in a probabilistic manner by comparing the conditional probability of liquefaction, or liquefaction susceptibility, to the expected intensity of seismic loading, or liquefaction opportunity.
