Our aim is to outline the ground characterisation studies in Canakkale test site. Study is based on the EU H2020
LIQUEFACT project entitled “Liquefact: Assessment and mitigation of liquefaction potential across Europe: a
holistic approach to protect structures / infrastructures for improved resilience to earthquake-induced
liquefaction disasters”. Objectives and extent of ground characterization for Canakkale test site includes preexisting
soil investigation studies and complementary field studies. There were several SPT and geophysical
tests carried out in the study area. Within the context of the complementary tests, six (6) study areas in the test
site were chosen and complementary tests were carried out in these areas. In these areas, additional boreholes
were opened and SPT tests were performed. Seismic refraction, MASW and micro tremor measurements had
been carried out in pre-existing studies. Tests were downhole seismic, PS-logging, seismic refraction, 2D-ReMi,
MASW, micro tremor (H/V Nakamura method), 2D resistivity and resonance acoustic profiling (RAP).
Dynamic soil properties had not been measured in pre-existing studies, therefore these properties were
investigated within the scope of the complementary tests. Within the context of complementary field studies,
dynamic soil properties were measured using resonant column and cyclic direct shear tests.
