    Abstract

    In this paper, an analytical approximation for the evaluation of the pore pressure and effective stresses in marine sediments under combined wave and current loadings is derived. Unlike previous investigations, non-linear interactions between waves and currents are considered in this study. An analytical solution for the wave-current induced oscillatory soil response in marine sediment is presented first. Based on the proposed analytical solution, a parametric study for the liquefaction potential will be carried out. Parametric study results indicate that the influence of current and non-linear waves on the maximum liquefaction depth is significant. (C) 2012 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
