Simulation of liquefaction and consequences of interbedded soil deposits using CPT data

Several corrections have been proposed since 1990s for the interpretation of liquefaction potential and analysis of the consequences of liquefaction based on cone penetration test (CPT) measurements. However, few publications address how these factors affect the calculation results. In this study, extensive studies of soil liquefaction and its consequences were performed using selected CPT data from two sites located within 7 km of the fault rupture of the 1999 Kocaeli, Turkey earthquake (Mw = 7.5). The effects of thickness of interval for averaging, thin layer correction and transition zone were examined in detail.
