Construction of structures like buildings, foundations on loose granular soils (like sands) has become a tough task in earthquake-prone areas. This is due to the fact that behavior of soil under static loading is different from dynamic loading. Several areas in India such as Kashmir, Himalayas, Bihar, Northeast region are frequently prone to earthquakes. Moreover, the recent earthquakes like Bhuj, 2001 and Nepal earthquake (2015) which were the most destructive earthquakes in India in the last 50 years had caused huge damage. The reconnaissance carried by many people showed that those earthquakes were characterized by widespread liquefaction that caused sand volcanoes, ground cracking, lateral spreading, etc. Not only these, there are many other cases also in the past where severe havoc was seen due to induced liquefaction during earthquakes
