A series of centrifuge liquefaction tests have been conducted at C-CORE's geotechnical centrifuge facility: two on variable soil and one on uniform soil deposits. A single storied frame structure resting on two strip footings was also placed on that soil deposit. Experimental results such as accelerations, excess pore water pressures (EPWP) and settlements were monitored throughout the tests. Recorded results support the conclusion of previous research that more EPWP is generated in
more » ... s soil deposits than in the corresponding homogeneous soil. The mechanism of this phenomenon is discussed in this paper.
