Liquefaction is a phenomenon in which the shear strength of the soil dramatically is reduced or even eliminated in a short time. This phenomenon occurs in non-cohesive, saturation and sleazy soils that have been subjected to ground motions and result of earthquakes. This study compares the results of different methods for evaluating liquefaction potential in the sandy soils of Bandar Abbas coastal city. Based on this, the results of standard penetration test from geotechnical data of two boreholes drilling machine have been used in the coastal city of Bandar Abbas, Iran.
