Abstract In this paper, the model uncertainty of the developed standard penetration test (SPT)-based model for evaluation of liquefaction potential of soil is estimated within the framework of the first-order reliability method (FORM). First, an empirical model to determine the cyclic resistance ratio ( CRR ) of the soil is developed, based on the post-liquefaction SPT data using an evolutionary artificial intelligence technique, multi-gene genetic programming (MGGP). This developed resistance model along with an existing cyclic stress ratio ( CSR ) model forms a limit state function for reliability-based approach for liquefaction triggering analysis. The uncert...
