shear modulus, which shows the relation of G
max (kPa) with (σd/2)1/2(kPa)1/2. When applied to soils from different sites, the correlation can be normalized in reference to its minimum void ratio (e
min). Accordingly, an improved method is established to evaluate the liquefaction potential with shear-wave velocity. The critical
shear-wave velocity of liquefaction is in linear relation with 1/4 power of depth and the maximum acceleration during earthquakes,
which can be used to explain the phenomenon that the possibility of liquefaction decreases with the increment of the depth.
Compared with previous methods this method turns out simple and effective, which is also verified by the results of cyclic
