Earthquake is one of the natural calamities that occur on large geographical area. During earthquakes, liquefaction of saturated soil deposit is a major cause for failure of various infrastructure as well as lifeline facilities. The cause for liquefaction is the build-up of excess hydrostatic pressure due to the application of cyclic shear stresses induced during ground shaking. From the literature review, it is understood that the mechanism of pore pressure generation of sand and sand–fines mixtures is still not clear and requires further investigation/research. In this paper, a series of stress-controlled cyclic triaxial undrained shear tests were conducted on reconstituted sample of sand–fines mixtures for evaluating and understanding the pore pressure build-up in soils. Sand was procured from Cauvery river bed, Karnataka, and locally available low plasticity clay fines were used to prepare sand–fines mixtures. The results indicate that the presence of fines reduces the pore pressure build-up when compared to clean sand.
