Abstract

This paper examines and re-calibrates the liquefaction potential index (IL) originally proposed by Iwasaki et al. The re-calibration is conducted using CPT measurements at 154 sites. Both factor of safety (FS) and probability of liquefaction (PL) are considered in the calculation of IL. Using PL, instead of FS, yields more consistent IL values. Based on the results, the interpretation of IL is established. An empirical method for estimating probability of the occurrence of significant liquefaction effect is also established using Bayes's theorem and the distributions of IL values for the case histories examined.
