Evaluation

Earthquake-Induced Cracking at Embankment Dams



Critical state approach

Assessing post-liquefaction strengths



Methods

Estimating transient and permanent deformations in slopes and a case study for a slope supporting penstocks



Implications

New ANCOLD Earthquake Guidelines and the new Geoscience Australia earthquake catalogue for seismic ground motion hazard in Australia and comparison of ANCOLD and NZSOLD guidelines and hazard levels



Comparison

Different methods for estimating permanent displacements in embankments subjected to strong earthquake shaking and a case study relating to earthfill embankments subjected to the 2013 Lake Grassmere and 2016 Kaikoura earthquakes
