  "abstract": "<p>The study focuses on the effects of liquefaction on structures taken from data on about 1,000 private residential masonry buildings located in several municipalities struck by the 2012 Emilia earthquake.&nbsp;Survey data were collected by teams of experts coordinated by the Italian Department of Civil Protection in the immediate post-earthquake emergency phase. They included information on<br>\n&nbsp;building characteristics and the level and extent of the damage to structural and non-structural&nbsp;&nbsp;components. Furthermore, according to data related to the reconstruction process, information on the&nbsp;&nbsp;liquefaction-induced type and extent of the damage was also collected. Through a comparative&nbsp;&nbsp;analysis of the empirical damage, it was found that liquefaction strongly affected the buildings,&nbsp;&nbsp;confirming its relevance in the damage scenario under specific subsoil conditions. Based on this&nbsp;&nbsp;evidence, the paper proposes a correlation between structural damage and liquefaction when it comes&nbsp;&nbsp;to deriving proper preliminary empirical fragility curves. A suitable parameter to define liquefaction&nbsp;&nbsp;effects at ground level is introduced and correlated to damage grades defined according to the&nbsp;&nbsp;European Macroseismic Scale: EMS-98.</p>",
