Liquefaction is the one of the major problems in geotechnical engineering. Especially; deaths, structural damages and financial loss can occur after liquefaction. Therefore, liquefaction potential of the soils should be determined before the construction. In this study, silty sand soils were taken from the city of Eskisehir, Turkey. Reconstituted samples were tested by using laboratory scale shaking table test device. Liquefaction potential of the soil samples were determined and the test results were discussed.
