Abstract

Canals are important facilities that serve as lifelines by supplying water to urban areas. However, a budget of staggering proportions would be necessary to apply the usual countermeasures adopted in preventing liquefaction to an entire canal. Against this background, the application of sheet-pile with drain as a reasonable mitigation method to reduce liquefaction-related damage to existing flume channels (i.e., uplift/sinking displacement and inclination) based on performance-based design has been studied by authors. This paper confirms good reproducibility for dynamic effective stress FEM analysis with respect to the results of several shaking table tests in 1g gravitational fields and the effectiveness of the proposed countermeasure for actual-scale structures based on this analysis.
