The one-dimensional liquefaction analysis program DYNA1D is based on the three-dimensional multi-surface plasticity theory and required material parameters can be obtained from standard soil tests. In this paper, the basic components of the analysis procedure are presented, together with its validations. Firstly the results of liquefaction experiments using a shaking table and computed results obtained in the simulation of the liquefaction tests by DYNA1D are presented and discussed. Then, DYNA1D is used to simulate the Superstition Hills (California) earthquake of November 24, 1987. Computed and recorded excess pore-water pressure histories are compared and discussed in detail. -from Authors
