Paper Title:
The Applicability of Existing Typical Liquefaction Evaluation Methods of Site Soils Based on Shear Wave Velocities for Bachu Earthquake
  Abstract

Based on liquefaction survey of 2003 Xinjiang Bachu earthquake of Ms6.8 and in-situ shear wave velocity testing data, the feasibility and applicability of five typical liquefaction evaluation methods which use shear wave velocities as criteria are presented herein. Analysis showed that none of the five liquefaction evaluation methods can provide a satisfactory result in Bachu area. The successful judging rates are only 36% to 64%. The intensity method which is employed to evaluate liquefied and non-liquefied sites in Bachu area provides only 40% successful judging rate, and the method is risky in intensity VII area and conservative in intensity IX area. The critical lines of the five methods deviate greatly from the actual lines. In intensity VII area all the five methods incorrectly misjudge. Further work has to be conducted to research on the soil properties in Bachu area and to establish the regional liquefaction evaluation method in Xinjiang.
