Educational Resources

The Soil Liquefaction Web Site, is developed by Jorgen Johansson under the
supervision of Professor Steven L. Kramer of the University of Washington. It
contains up-to-date information on soil liquefaction and uses the videos and
photos. I think it is the best site regarding that matter.


"The (Dr. C.H.) Juang's Website on Soil Liquefaction in the 1999 Chi-Chi, Taiwan
Earthquake" , available from Dr. Juang's website complete with list of publications
and photographs.
