Abstract
Hydraulic fills are often deposited in a loose state making them susceptible to liquefaction. The paper focuses on flow/static liquefaction, a phenomenon that has led to a number of catastrophic failures. The current understanding of flow/static liquefaction, based on the concepts of critical/steady state and state parameter, is reviewed. Theoretical concepts such as that of controllability lead to a more rigorous definition of the undrained instability phenomena associated with flow liquefactio...
