Numerous methods exist to determine the liquefaction potential of a site due to earthquake, from which the stress-based empirical methods are the most commonly used in practice. Despite of their widespread use, their shortcomings have given way to the evolution of strain and energy-based methods. Their benefits make them a very promising alternative candidate for liquefaction potential evaluation. To reveal differences and uncertainties involved in the different methods, a comparative analysis was performed for the site of the Paks Nuclear Power Plant with the aim of contributing to the safety assessment of the plant with respect to liquefaction effects.
