Liquefaction Flow Slide Analysis with DAN Utilizing the Liquefied Rheology

This article describes a study applying the numerical code DAN (Hungr 1995) to the motion of earthquake-triggered flow slides in loose, saturated granular soils. A series of analyses of liquefied flow slide case histories are performed utilizing the most recent developments in the DAN code. A new type of rheological kernel is introduced to simulate the behaviour of liquefied soil, based on the work of Olson and Stark (2002).
