We have organised the LIQUEFACT project in nine work packages (WPs), each of which encapsulates a coherent body of work. The first 7 WPs is where the major technical activities will take place and have been scheduled to interact coherently with one another. The last 2 work packages (WP8: Dissemination and Exploitation and WP9: Consortium / Project Management) are the horizontal activities that run all through the course of the project’ still interacting with each of the technical WPs. As mentioned in section 1.3.3, the project will follow a 3 phased approach and this related mainly with the technical WPs and these are Preliminary Scoping (Phase 1), Research (Phase 2) and Implementation (Phase 3).
WP1 (Stakeholder Requirements and Industry/Research Gaps) solely represent phase 1, which effectively kicks off the project and sets its agenda, with the specific objective being to establish a common framework, which ensures that all the participants have a common understanding of what is to be achieved.
WP2 (European Liquefaction Hazard Map and Methodology for Localized Assessment of Liquefaction Potential), WP3 (Structural Liquefaction Resilience & Vulnerability Assessment Methodologies), WP4 (Comparative Analysis of State of the Art Liquefaction Mitigation Measures) and WP5 (Community Resilience and Built Asset Management Planning Framework) represent phase 2, where the bulk of the research and innovation activities will take place. The output of all these work packages will then be used in phase 3.
WP6 and WP7 represents phase 3 and uses the output from phase 2 to develop the LIQUEFACT Reference Guide software toolbox, then validate it using retrospective case study analysis, while also drafting recommendation guidelines the will feed into the ongoing revision process for the European Structural Eurocode standards
