Victoria Chapter

Evaluation of Soil Liquification and Post-Earthquake Deformation using CPT

Professor Peter Robertson

The presentation will provide a brief background on soil liquefaction and describe how the Cone Penetration Test (CPT) can be used to evaluate the potential for liquefaction as well as estimate post-earthquake deformations. Example case histories will be used to illustrate the methodology. The presentation will compare and discuss recent CPT-based methods.

Engineers Australia members participating in AGS technical sessions can record attendance on their personal CPD logs. Members should refer to Engineers Australia CPD policy for details on CPD types, requirements and auditing guidelines.
