Liquefaction is a serious earthquake hazard. Under shaking, naturally saturated granular media (soils, fault gouge) that usually supports shear stress like a solid, may start to flow like a fluid. This phenomena is not well understood nor predicted. Einat Aharonov will present a numerical study of such a system and explain some of the physics controlling it.
