Abstract
The Lower Tagus River Valley area, in Lisbon, Portugal, has been studied for having<br> a high potential liquefaction risk, due to the geological and geomorphological settings and the<br> seismicity associated to the region. This study focuses on the comparison of the cyclic behaviour<br> of three sands collected on site, using two distinct laboratory procedures. Tests with different<br> values of Cyclic Stress Ratio were conducted in both cyclic simple shear and cyclic triaxial testing<br> apparatus to assess the CRR curves of each material in reconstituted conditions. The comparison<br> of the results highlights the main differences caused by distinct cyclic l...
