Experimental Research on Liquefaction Behavior of Saturated Silt in Anhui Area
The liquefaction for saturated silty foundation can be usually incurred under dynamic loading, such as vehicular loading and earthquakes. The silty soil liquefaction caused by earthquake is mostly the direct reason for the foundation invalidation and the structure collapse. To analyze the liquefaction behavior of saturated silty soil from Anhui Province under high seismic shock, a series of dynamic triaxial tests are carried out under the given density of remolded saturated silt with different confining pressure conditions varying from 1 m to 10 m depth in the laboratory. The increasing law of liquefaction resistance of the remolded saturated silt in Anhui province, dynamic intensity and the process of excess pore pressure are obtained from the dynamic triaxial test research. Meanwhile, the maximum liquefaction depth and the dynamic deformation properties are also illuminated based on dynamic triaxial tests, which can provide scientific data to further make engineering measures preventing the silty foundation from liquefying.
