Abstract

This paper examines the seismic settlement of a site at the Chang-Hwa Coastal Industrial Park in the 1999 Chi-Chi, Taiwan, earthquake. The site is on a new reclaimed land that was created by hydraulic filling. After several months of ground covering and leveling work, the site experienced a major earthquake, the Chi-Chi earthquake (Mw = 7.6). In this earthquake, evidences of liquefaction were observed in this new filling area. After the earthquake, additional site exploration using CPT was carried out. These in situ test data, carried out in areas with and without liquefaction manifestation, are analyzed, and the results are reported.
