Earthquake Assessment

For earthquake induced liquefaction assessment the most popular in-situ test is the seismic cone penetration test (SCPTu). From the SCPTu one can determine:

  • Soil Type
  • Groundwater Level
  • Soil Strength
  • Cyclic Resistance Ratio
  • Undrained Strength Ratio
  • Ground Remediation Requirements
  • Vertical and Lateral Displacements
