Abstract:

This report describes the procedures used to interpret the data obtained from field investigations to determine the liquefaction potential and post-earthquake strengths of the foundation soils at the Alben Barkley Lock and Dam Project, Kentucky. The basic components of the report include the interpretation of field data to characterize the site and evaluate the foundation stratigraphy dynamic response analyses of two representative embankment sections, the analysis and interpretation of Cone and Standard Penetration Test data to determine the cyclic strengths for the evaluation of the liquefaction potential and the post earthquake strengths were input to the seismic stability analysis documented in Volume 5 of this series of reports.
