5. Limit Equilibrium Analysis of Piles Subjected to Earthquake Loading, Limit equilibrium of piles in laterally spreading soils, Limit equilibrium analysis in the presence of non liquefied crust
6. Liquefaction as a Foundation Hazard, Axial Load Transfer Due to Liquefaction, Liquefaction-induced (co-seismic), Downdrag (postearthquake)
7. Liquefaction-induced Lateral Spreading, Simple Methods to Estimate the Extent of Lateral Spreading, Effects of Lateral Spreading on Pile Foundations
8. Recommendations on Estimation of Lateral Loads for Pile Design, Design Recommendations for pile foundation under lateral spreading
9. Model creation to represent a pile in soil deposit using analysis program, representing the non-linearity of both soil and pile system. – Applying monotonic, cyclic and dynamic loading
10. Comparing the results of monotonic, cyclic and dynamic loading on the pile-soil model with load – displacement curve etc.
