Zach Bullock presented on simplified models for predicting liquefaction damage for Lloyd's Day at Rice University!

Zach's research is focused on developing a performance-based framework for analyzing building damage from liquefaction. This includes simplified procedures for estimating the settlement and tilt of shallow foundations. He is currently working on extending the framework to include analysis of densification as a mitigation technique, as well as to connect it to existing regional methods of analyzing liquefaction hazard.
