The effects of spatial variability of soil properties on the behaviour of saturated soil deposits subjected to seismic excitation are analysed, and their implications for geotechnical design are discussed. A Monte Carlo simulation methodology, combining digital generation of non-Gaussian stochastic vector ®elds with dynamic, nonlinear ®nite element analyses, is used for that purpose. The proposed procedure is applied to assess the soil liquefaction potential, which is found to be considerablydoi:10.1680/geot.19188.8.131.529 fatcat:7ictxmg26nfwfpg7uuieiunf3i
