Liquefaction

Temporary transformation of a soil mass of soil or sediment into a fluid mass. Occurs when the cohesion of particles in the soil or sediment is lost. Often triggered by seismic waves from an earthquake. For this condition to take place the pore spaces between soil particles must be at or near saturation.
