Considering of Soil Liquefaction Hazard at the Downstream Area of Sattarkhan Dam Using Shear Wave Velocity during Ahar-Varzeghan Earthquake 2012

Abstract

One of the important problems in earthquake geotechnical engineering is liquefaction phenomenon that happens in loose saturated granular soils. In this study, 11 boreholes from Govanjik and dayalar area in downstream of Sattarkhan Dam collected and evaluated. Results of research are showed that with assuming cementation in soils, liquefaction potential is weak to moderate than non-cemented condition. Also, value of LPI based on Vs (both of cementation and non-cementation status) is more than SPT.
