Liquefaction and Lateral Spreading
Earthquake induced ground liquefaction can result in significant deformations at the surface - in some cases enough to topple large buildings.
Lateral spreading resulting from liquefaction can also cause catastrophic damage affecting large areas.
For specialists in liquefaction and lateral spreading see LDE for:
- Site liquefaction potential
- Identification of layers prone to liquefaction
- Quantification of the magnitude of surface settlement
- Quantification of differential settlement potential
- Structural deformation potential
- Magnitudes of lateral spreading potential across the site
- Surface deformation potential
- Design advice to minimise the risk of building deformation associated with lateral spreading
- Lateral spreading remediation
If you need any assistance with any of these call us now on 0800 397 566, or send us an enquiry form.
