An experimental study is carried out to investigate the static liquefaction of sand. For this purpose, Babolsar sand with its liquefiable parameters such as soil properties and high seismic level of underground water are investigated using static compression drained and un-drained tri-axial tests under isotropically and anisotropically conditions. Also, the data results of this sand are compared with those of the previous studies on soil case history. The study results indicate that Babolsar
