Within the European project LIQUEFACT, cyclic triaxial tests were carried out on an Italian sand, Pieve di Cento sand, taken from a field trial located in Emilia Romagna (Ita-ly), which was affected by liquefaction during the 2012 earthquake. The cyclic resistance curve of that sand was obtained in laboratory on reconstituted specimens with a low confining stress and a low relative density to simulate the natural conditions in field. Based on an energetic model to predict the resistance to liquefaction of unsaturated soils, the role of the specific devia-toric energy to liquefaction (Es,liq) has been investigated for saturated soils. For each test the specific d...
