Abstract
The paper describes a fast design method for horizontal drains to be used as a mitigation technique for liquefaction, developed in the framework of the European project LIQUEFACT. During the earthquake, this ground improvement technique allows to reduce the pore pressure build up under existing buildings, where more conventional vertical drains cannot be used (being it difficult to install them). By reducing the pore pressure increments, the horizontal drains can reduce the liquefaction risk for shallow foundations. The problem is modelled with a bidimensional geometry, applying the consolidation equation in the hypothesis of Terzaghi-Rendulic and solving it wit...
