Dear colleagues: Do you think is possible that a stratum of crushed clamshell with little fine sand, can also experience the liquefaction failure when it is subject to an earthquake?. The deposit of crushed clamshell is in the sea, near the coast, with a maximum size of 5 to 6 mm, and it has a thick of 11 m with number of blows in the standard penetration test between 1 and 6.
The apparent “cohesion” that can develop the calcium carbonate among the clamshell fragments, could influence in the answer of the material.
Thank you for your comments.
