The behavior of the ground is crucial to the stability of structures during earthquake conditions. Our understanding of this behavior depends on a knowledge of soil dynamics and the deformation of soils during these catastrophic events. This book provides a comprehensive study of this subject, presenting much of the valuable material accumulated by Japanese researchers over recent years. The author covers theory, laboratory tests, and findings from the field, providing helpful guidance for civil engineers undertaking the critical task of protecting structures in vulnerable zones
