The development of design guidance for bridges in New Zealand for liquefaction and lateral spreading effects

This report is a result of a NZ Transport Agency (Transport Agency) research project towards the development of guidelines for the design of bridges on sites prone to liquefaction and lateral spreading in New Zealand. The purpose of the report is to identify a clear set of available procedures for analysis and design that are based on observed seismic behaviour of bridges (reviewed case studies) and on the most recent research findings.
