AbstractThe liquefaction potential of the granular deposits at the Little Jackfish dyke site was studied using the standard penetrometer, the piezocone penetrometer, the cyclic simple shear device and the triaxial cell. The study shows that the top loose fine sand layer may liquefy for two locations while soils at other locations are not liquefiable. The approach based on the steady state concept indicates that a flow slide failure for the proposed dyke is unlikely.
