Abstract:

A preliminary exploration of the damsite at Patoka Dam, Indiana, revealed foundation materials with extremely low penetration resistance. Since the area in which the site is located has a history of moderate seismic activity, a laboratory study was conducted to evaluate the earthquake liquefaction potential. A simplified analysis of the laboratory test results showed that the foundation is expected to liquefy if subjected to an earthquake of magnitude 6.5 with a peak acceleration of 0.17 g or greater.
