Abstract

The authors proposed a reliability analysis method for long continuous structures considering investigation sites to counter liquefaction failure. This method is characterized by continuously calculating the failure probability caused by liquefaction at an arbitrary point and quantifying the uncertainty concerning the investigation site. The purpose of this study is to verify its effectiveness based on application to an actual river dike that suffered liquefaction failure due to the 2011 Earthquake off the Pacific coast of Tohoku.
