Additional Physical Format: Online version: Mitchell, James Kenneth, Fabric analysis of undisturbed sands from Niigata, Japan. Vicksburg, Miss. The fabric of undisturbed sand samples, six from a location known to have liquefied and five from a location that did not, from a site in Niigata, Japan, has been studied using petrographic thin.

Examples of liquefaction and resulting damage were observed during the Alaska (), Niigata, Japan (), and Tangshan, China (), earthquakes. Ground failure due to earthquake-induced soil liquefaction may manifest itself ap excessive settlement, loss. sands geotechnical engineering cpt strain seed asce behavior effective ratio tests undrained lateral resistance relationships pore site strains cycles correlations You can write a book review and share your experiences.

A research program was undertaken to visualize and quantify the three-dimensional nature of fabric and microstructure of natural silts with the objective of better understanding the influence of these factors on macroscopic monotonic and cyclic soil behaviour.

The development of technology for the visualizations using X-ray micro-computed tomography (CT) formed a key task. Natural, low-plastic. A systematic study of the effect of grain size, gradation and silt content on the monotonic and cyclic undrained loading response of sand is presented.

The objective of the study is to gain an improved understanding of the behaviour of fluvial and hydraulic fill sands. A slurry method of deposition is developed to prepare homogeneous specimens of well-graded and silty sands, and to simulate.

A Rigorous and Definitive Guide to Soil Liquefaction. Soil liquefaction occurs when soil loses much of its strength or stiffness for a time―usually a few minutes or less―and which may then cause structural failure, financial loss, and even death.

Differential settlement from the compression of loose sand pockets caused severe damage to major structures following the Skopke earthquake in Macedonia [ 91 ]. The Permian – Lower Triassic Khuff Formation in the Middle East contains some of the World’s largest gas accumulations.

In these predominantly carbonate and evaporite deposits exploration has been difficult due to the sub-seismic resolution of reservoir-prone intervals, while gas production is challenged by heterogeneity due to facies variations, dolomitisation, cementation and fracturing.

The map shows a fabric oflinear anomalies with predominantly WNW -ESE trend, wavelengths of 1 to km, lengths of 2 to 7 km, and peak to trough amplitudes of to nT.

A possible but unproven explanation for these anomalies is that they are due to biogenic magnetite created where gas has leaked from faults into near-surface sediments.

The Bibliography of Aeolian Research (BAR) is a comprehensive bibliography focused on aeolian research -- the study of the detachment, transport, and deposition of sediments by wind. Aeolian research spans a broad array of disciplines and may include: the study of the physics of blowing sand, dust, and other granular material (i.e., saltation, suspension, creep and abrasion).

fabric anisotropic ratio and the stress exponent. Because K 0 increases with age, it is reasoned that much of the K 0 correction on liquefaction resistance of aged sands is captured by the age or diagenesis correction factor K DR that has been proposed by various researchers. Hence, it is recommended that the K K0 factor not be used with the K DR.
