Soil liquefaction is a cascade effect of earthquakes. The damage to the built environment caused by liquefaction does not often directly result in casualties. The effects stretch the recovery of the communities hit by increasing the cost of reconstruction, affecting the community’s awareness of risk and lengthening the outage time of critical infrastructure services.
The European research project LIQUEFACT investigated the impact that earthquake induced soil liquefaction events could have on the vulnerability and resilience of communities across Europe. The project also proposed management tools to assess the community and critical infrastructure resilience to those events. This included a technical-economic tool to assess the effectiveness of mitigation techniques to reduce the vulnerability of structural systems to soil liquefaction events.
Dr Mariantonietta Morga, senior lecturer at Anglia Ruskin University, will present an overview of the tools developed by the LIQUEFACT project, focusing on the tool for assessment of the critical infrastructure resilience and its use as management support tool for the enhancement of infrastructure resilience to natural disasters.
