Re: Research

I take soil liquefaction to be the result of vibration, e.g. earth quakes when the soil can almost appear to boil and once buried items can 'float' to the surface. However, this was not what I was talking about, rather the atypical, unpredictable behaviour of some soils, (but which ones and why?) when under 'duress'.
