Paper Title:
Recent Advances in Gravelly Soils Liquefaction Evaluation
  Abstract

Many gravelly soils liquefied cases history especially in the 2008 Wenchuan earthquake warn that loose to moderate density of gravels have much potential to liquefy under a given earthquake shaking. The large diameter triaxial apparatus is a relative feasible means to explore the liquefaction mechanism of gravelly soils to some extent. Becker penetration test (BPT) could be droved hrough gravelly soils layer, but BPT was not directly correlated with field behavior. Because of a wider range of grain sizes than those reported from previous earthquakes, gravels characteristics liquefied in the Wenchuan earthquake are representative and universal. The gravels liquefaction evaluation method developed from the Wenchuan earthquake should be feasible for worldwide use. The recent and ongoing developments in gravels liquefaction was highlighted
