The energetic interpretation of liquefaction tests indicates that the behavior of unsaturated<br> sands can be related to the specific energy spent to liquefaction In this paper, an insight<br> is proposed on the role played by the two components of such a specific energy: the specific<br> volumetric energy to liquefaction (Ev,liq) and the specific deviatoric energy to liquefaction (Es,liq).<br> It is argued that Ev,liq (which is nil in saturated soils) can be considered as a state variable to<br> quantify the increase of cyclic resistance caused by a reduced degree of saturation, being thus<br> constant along a given cyclic resistance curve. Es,liq is instead r...
