LIQUEFACT Reference Guide (LRG) software is one of the main products of the LIQUEFACT, a multi-disciplinary project funded under the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 framework program. The software, which incorporates both data and methodologies collected and elaborated in the project’s various work packages, has been developed for liquefaction mitigation planning and decision support, able to estimate and predict the likely consequences of Earthquake-Induced Liquefaction Disaster (EILD) to the most vulnerable region of Europe. In contrast to other seismic risk assessment software tools, the LRG software is targeting a wider range of user groups with different levels of technical background (urban planners, facility managers, structural and geotechnical engineers, or seismic risk modelers) as well as requirements. In doing so, the LRG software toolbox shall allow users assessing the liquefaction-related risk as well as assisting them in liquefaction mitigation planning.
