Liam Finn et al). Earthquake induced forces on retaining walls (R.M. Bakeer, S.K. Bhatia). Risk analysis of BRPL compressor (offsites) foundations (N. Puri et al.). Cyclic hardening of sand during earthquake events (U. Guettler et al.). Estimation of bridge foundation stiffness from forced vibration data (C.B. Crouse, B. Hushmand). A parametric study of effect of vibration on granular soils (P.W. Chang, Y.S. Chae). EQGEN86: An artificial earthquake simulation program (N.Y. Chang et al.). On the behavior of soils during earthquakes - liquefaction (G. Castro). Liquefaction of shock loaded saturated sand (G.E. Veyera, W.A. Charlie). Seismic response of pore water pressure in surface sand layer (E. Yanagisawa et al.). A study of earthquake resistance of highway abutments during liquefaction (T. Ishibashi et al.).

Cyclic triaxial tests at low stresses for parameter determination (A. Bezuijen et al.). Laboratory prototype of in situ cyclic and dynamic geotechnical testing system (R. Henke, W. Henke). High resolution measurement of shear modulus of clay using triaxial vane device (S. Pamukcu, J.N. Suhayda). Model tests for earthquake simulation of geotechnical problems (R.W. Whitman, H. Klapperich). Experiments and analysis for the hysteresis characteristics of soil (A. Hara et al.). Shear moduli and damping characteristics of Kosovo high plasticity clays (N. Dzeletovic, T. Paskalov). Numerical modelling of membrane penetration effects on undrained triaxial tests (J.R. Raines et al.). Cyclic properties of soils within a large range of strain amplitude (P.Y. Hicher et al.).


Despite advances in the field of geotechnical earthquake engineering, earthquakes continue to cause loss of life and property in one part of the world or another. The Third International Conference on Soil Dynamics and Earthquake Engineering, Princeton University, Princeton, New Jersey, USA, 22nd to 24th June 1987, provided an opportunity for participants from all over the world to share their expertise to enhance the role of mechanics and other disciplines as they relate to earthquake engineering. The edited proceedings of the conference are published in four volumes. This volume covers: Constitutive Relations in Soil Dynamics, Liquefaction of Soils, and Experimental Soil Dynamics. With its companion volumes, it is hoped that it will contribute to the further development of techniques, methods and innovative approaches in soil dynamics and earthquake engineering.
