Liquefaction and post-liquefaction behaviour of a soft natural clayey soil
Siba Kheirbek-Saoud and Jean-Marie Fleureau*

 
Abstract
    The paper presents the results of identification, monotonous and cyclic triaxial tests on a potentially liquefiable soil from the Guadeloupe island. The material is a very soft clayey soil whose susceptibility to liquefaction is not clear when referring to index properties such as grain size distribution, plasticity, etc. The classifications found in the literature indicate that the material has rather a
 
Key Words
