    • Predicting Liquefaction in Near-Real-Time (NRT): An Assessment of Geospatial vs. Geotechnical Models During the Canterbury Earthquakes 

      Maurer, Brett W.; Bradley, Brendon A.; van Ballegooy, Sjoerd (2017-10)
      Semi-empirical models based on in-situ geotechnical tests have become the standard of practice for predicting soil liquefaction. Since the inception of the "simplified" cyclic-stress model in 1971, variants based on various ...
