The objective of this research project is to study the liquefaction potential of crushable Kuantan sand. This research emphasizes mainly on the coastal areas of East Coast Peninsular Malaysia. Soil from these areas fulfils two major factors of liquefiable soil which are uniformly graded loose granular type of soils and in fully saturated soil condition. These areas are also involved to vast development where the soil are frequently exposed to activities that may cause soil crushing. Physical properties of soil from three different coastal areas in Kuantan such as the grain size distribution, specific gravity and relative density were determined before and after crushing the soil. The results of grain size distribution were then used to compare with the Technical Standards of Ports and Harbour to identify its potential of liquefaction. The liquefaction potential of soil in East Coast Malaysia was illustrated in the form of Particle Size Distribution (PSD) curve as the outcome of the research.
