Journal Article
Published: 06 November 2020
Quarterly Journal of Engineering Geology and Hydrogeology (2021) 54 (2): qjegh2020-039.
.... Liquefaction causes a loss of soil strength and an inability to support structures. The damage caused by liquefaction-related ground failure includes bridge, building and foundation failures, land settlement and flooding and flotation of buried structures (e.g. Kramer 1996 ; Bird et al. 2006 ; Karamitros...

..., such as monitoring of ground settlements caused by structures, dam integrity and displacements of creeping landslides. In contrast to conventional methods, such as extensometer, geodetical or radar measurements, the distributed sensors offer gapless monitoring over the entire depth of the borehole. The paper offers...

... have been subsiding for several decades and many dwellings have had to be abandoned. From topographical survey and visual observation, average rates of settlement vary between c. 0.1 and 0.4 m a −1 . The apparent depth and areal extent of ground movement are such that attempts to stabilize the area...

... for estimating purposes. In situ density tests (by sand replacement) were performed on site during the works ( Table 1 ), which were in broad agreement with the laboratory-derived estimate. The loaded cylinder test produced a normal stress v. settlement curve which was used to estimate a total settlement...

.... Wider-ranging studies, both in Britain and overseas, have identified ever broader causes of land instability, including those related to glacial and periglacial features, and also uncontrolled groundwater exploitation. This review provides a useful summary of land settlement and subsidence activity...

...) below sea level ( Figure 4 ). The low bearing capacity of these surficial deposits, and the likelihood for long-term differential settlement were without precedent at the time decsions were made (late 1905). The unusually wide footprint of the two massive embankments was intended to spread their weight...
