dc.description.abstract Following the 2010-2011 Canterbury earthquake sequence (CES), widespread liquefaction had been observed in Christchurch and surrounding areas, damaging many commercial buildings, residential houses and other civil engineering structures. The short time interval between the large earthquakes presented a very rare occasion to examine liquefaction mechanism in natural deposits. The reliquefaction experienced by the city highlighted the high liquefaction susceptibility of soil deposits in Christchurch, and presented a very challenging problem not only to the local residents but also to the geotechnical engineering profession. This paper summarises some of the lessons learned from CES, and the impacts of the observations made to the current practice of liquefaction assessment and mitigation. Emphasis is also placed on the development of geotechnical practice guidelines for use by the profession as a consequence of CES. en
