This book presents comprehensive hazard analysis methods for seismic soil liquefaction, providing an update on soil liquefaction by systematically reviewing the phenomenon's occurrence since the beginning of this century. It also puts forward a range of advanced research methods including in-situ tests, laboratory studies, physical model tests, numerical simulation, and performance-based assessment. Recent seismic liquefaction-related damage to soils and foundations demonstrate the increasing need for the comprehensive hazard analysis of seismic soil liquefaction in order to mitigate this damage and protect human lives. As such the book addresses the comprehensive hazard analysis of seismic soil liquefaction, including factors such as macroscopic characteristics, evaluating the liquefaction potential, dynamic characteristics and deformation processes, providing reliable evaluation results for liquefaction potential and deformation in the context of risk assessment.


Prof. Yu Huang was born in 1973 and received his Ph.D. in Geotechnical Engineering from Tongji University, Shanghai, China in 1999. Professor Huang's primary areas of research include earthquake engineering geology, geologic disasters, computational geomechanics, foundation engineering and environmental geology. He has authored more than 170 technical publications, including more than 50 papers in international refereed journals such as Engineering Geology, Landslides, the Journal of Geotechnical and Geoenvironmental Engineering (ASCE), Bulletin of Engineering Geology and the Environment, Natural Hazards, Environmental Earth Sciences, Earthquake Engineering & Structural Dynamics, Soil Dynamics and Earthquake Engineering, and the Journal of Performance of Constructed Facilities (ASCE). He was the first author of the monograph "Geo-disaster modeling and analysis: An SPH-based approach" published by Springer-Verlag in 2014. He now serves on the editorial board of Engineering Geology (Elsevier), Bulletin of Engineering Geology and the Environment (Springer), Geotechnical Research (ICE) and Geoenvironmental Disasters (Springer).

Dr. Miao Yu was born in 1989 and received her Ph.D. in Geological Engineering from Tongji University under the guidance of Prof. Yu Huang in 2016. She is currently working as an assistant professor at the China University of Geosciences, Wuhan.
