Abstract
This paper investigates the key parameters that influenced the settlement of a case study building on liquefiable soil in Adapazari (Turkey) during the 1999 Kocaeli earthquake. Ground movements in Adapazari caused large devastation, largely attributed to liquefaction of low plasticity silty soil layers underneath buildings on shallow foundations. The case study soil profile was well characterized by in-situ testing as well as laboratory tests from the Adapazari area. This allowed several different estimates of the building settlement to be obtained through different methods and through a variation in upper and lower bound estimates of the soil parameters. The di...
