Liquefaction potential on the specific site of nuclear power plant is analyzed and reviewed. The layered site for this study consists of silt and sand. Based on the limited available soil data, maximum shear strength at critical locations using Seed & Idriss method and computer program SHAKE is calculated, and liquefaction potential is reviewed. As seismic input motion used for the assessment of liquefaction, the artificial time history compatible with the US NRC Regulatory Guide 1.60 is used. Assessment results of the liquefaction are validated by analyzing to the other typical soil foundations which can show the effects on the foundation depth and soil data.
