Simplified CPT Performance-Based Assessment of Liquefaction and Effects

The objectives of this project are to develop: (1) performance-based procedures for the cone penetration test (CPT) modeled after recent performance-based procedures for the standard penetration test (SPT) to compute the hazard from liquefaction triggering, lateral spread displacement, and post-liquefaction free-field settlement at select return periods (475, 1033, and 2475 years); (2) simplified performance-based procedures for the CPT modeled after recent simplified performance-based procedures for the SPT [TPF-5(296)] to closely approximate the performance-based analysis results for liquefaction triggering, lateral spread displacement, and post-liquefaction free-field settlement at select return periods (475, 1033, and 2475 years); and (3) liquefaction triggering, lateral spread displacement, and post-liquefaction reference parameter maps in GIS format at return periods of 475 years, 1033 years, and 2475 years for each of the states participating in the study.
