In this paper, the authors predict responses of an earth structure due to a dynamic vibration using a 3-dimensional soil-water coupled dynamic analysis. The earth structure sitting on three types of ground which are consisted of liquefiable and un-liquefiable layers is found to settle the most in the ground of which the loose sandy layer is at the top. It shows the most dam settlement occurs in the ground type of which the loose sandy layer is at the bottom. A relative better seismic stability of the earth structure is found to sit on the ground of which the loose sandy layers underlie in the middle.
