This report is the eighteenth of a series in which new data obtained from borings made for revetment construction are analyzed to determine the applicability of an empirical method for predicting riverbank stability with regard to flow liquefaction failure. Boring data obtained in 1972 and 1973 are analyzed, and stability predictions are made for 31 new areas. Failures that occurred during 1972 and 1973 at sites previously analyzed also are discussed. Based on analyses made in 1958 of previous performance data, the classification criteria for zone A and zone B sands were modified in 1959. The failures at sites previously studied, new site predictions, and current year performance are analyzed using the modified criteria.
