Massarsch, K. R., Wersäll, C. & Fellenius, B. Liquefaction Induced by Deep Vertical Vibratory Compaction. ICE - Ground Improvement .

Three case histories were analysed where three different methods of deep vertical vibratory compaction were used to treat loose, water-saturated sand. The case histories analysed in this study suggest that vertically oscillating probes have the potential of being used as full-scale liquefaction testing machines. A new concept is outlined that could be used to establish the liquefaction hazard at a particular site.
