Abstract

This paper presents the results of an experimental study to investigate the effects of fines content and fines type on the liquefaction resistance. Clean sands were mixed with various amounts of two type fines (nonplastic fines FC200 and low plastic fines FC400). The cyclic triaxial tests were performed on the samples of clean sand and sand-fines mixtures. The liquefaction resistance, in terms of CSR at 15 cycles, increased 4.8-9.2% as the various fines content in the sand with low plastic fines (FC400) mixtures, but decreased 6.0-18.4% as the various fines content in the sand with nonplastic fines (FC200) mixtures.
