Abstract:

The site of the W. G. Huxtable Pumping Plant, located on the banks of the Mississippi River 60 miles south of Memphis, Tennessee, was investigated with regard to liquefaction potential. Cyclic triaxial compression tests were performed on remolded samples at various densities. An analysis was made using Seeds Simplified Procedure. As a result of this analysis, the structural excavation will be carried to a depth of approximately 47 ft. The exposed foundation is to be treated by compaction and soil stabilization techniques.
