One of the main goals of the LIQUEFACT project is the analysis of the effective-ness of some ground improvement techniques in the mitigation of seismically induced soil lique-faction risk. This aspect was addressed via a comprehensive experimental program by means of laboratory and centrifuge tests, as well as by carrying out a number of tests in a field trial located in Pieve di Cento (Italy), where a shaker was placed at ground level to generate cyclic shear stresses at ground level to induce a significant build-up of pore pressure in the shallow liquefiable sandy layer. Three series of tests were carried out: one in a zone without treatments (UN), one in a zo...
