dc.description.abstractLiquefaction susceptibility of the Late Pleistocene Hinuera Formation is of interest to the engineering community as it is unclear whether materials of this age will still be prone to activation by cyclic stresses. In this paper we report on rare paleoliquefaction features in the form of injection structures that we have identified at two sites near Hamilton. These structures are clearly earthquake induced, and indicate the potential for future liquefaction episodes. However, we suggest that the hazard is restricted to areas with impeded drainage that imparts a high water table. Such areas are localised, and may be recognised from the modern (pedological) soil distribution. Evaluating piezocone penetration test (CPTu) data from the sites of known paleoliquefaction indicates that the CPTu gives a meaningful indication of liquefaction potential, and questions the validity of applying aging factors to these deposits.en_NZ
