Project Title : Evaluation of Liquefaction potential index and severity mapping of Rangpur City Corporation
Time Period: 2020-2021
The Liquefaction Potential Index (LPI) is a crucial factor to determine the risk of liquefaction in an area, which can cause significant damage to buildings, roads, and other structures. This project aimed to investigate the LPI of different Wards in Rangpur City Corporation and prepare a liquefaction severity map of the city. Liquefaction severity map can aid policymakers and legislators in informed land use planning and development of the town.
The objectives of the project were-
- To investigate the Liquefaction Potential Index (LPI) of different Wards in Rangpur City Corporation
- To prepare a liquefaction severity map of Rangpur City Corporation based on the LPI values
- To use the severity map to inform land use planning and development decisions by legislators and policymakers
- Classify the severity level of each Ward as moderate, moderate to severe, or severe based on the field and laboratory test results
