Aim of project is to analyze the liquefaction possibilities of some selected sites. The SPT data collected from selected sites and determination of liquefaction susceptibility of selected sites by using noviliq software. From this shear stress due to earthquake or settlements of structure are evaluated using novoliqsoftware.“A Phenomenon where by a saturated or partially saturated soil substantially loses strength and stiffness in response to an applied stress, usually earthquake Shaking or other sudden change in stress condition, ca using it to behave like a liquid” is called Soil Liquefaction. By using novoliq software for liquefaction data analysis, test values graphs are collected for determination of liquefaction susceptibility of these sites using Novoliq soil software. Finally we can analyse the liquefied zone or sites with the help software, for this liquefied sites prevention methods are to be given to promote anti liquefaction and risk measures. Additionally, phenomena related to damage in soils and foundations induced by liquefaction are investigated and discussed...
