The workshop aims to provide a fundamental understanding of the liquefaction process, necessary to the enhancement of liquefaction prediction. The contributions are divided into eight sections, which include: factors affecting liquefaction susceptibility and field studies of liquefaction.

This publication contains papers presented at the International Workshop on the Physics and Mechanics of Soil Liquefaction, held in Baltimore, Maryland, USA, September 1998. The workshop focused on the physics of liquefaction in order to improve criteria and methods for predicting the collapse of saturated soils, enhance the triggering analysis, develop measures of mitigation, evaluate the effectiveness of remedial techniques and improve the current design recommendations. There are 8 sections entitled: the mechanism of instability ( 4 papers); effect of soil gradation on liquefaction ( 4 papers); factors affecting liquefaction susceptibility ( 5 papers); soil fabric and its effect on liquefaction (3 papers); methods of characterizing liquefaction potential (5 papers); methods of characterizing post-liquefaction deformation ( 3 papers); centrifuge studies of liquefaction ( 3 papers); field studies of liquefaction (3 papers).
