Liquefaction is considered as a major crucial hazard among different seismic risks. Ground improvement methods commonly employed, to improve the natural site conditions under such situations, lead to better performance of various engineering structures built up on. The paper presents various aspects of liquefaction hazard mitigation of loose saturated sands with a spectrum of ground engineering methods. A short discussion on liquefaction hazard associated with loose sand deposits and its evaluation followed by outlines of the ground engineering applications with the main focus on stone columns/granular piles, sand compaction piles, deep soil mixing, and dynamic compaction as liquefaction hazard mitigation measures are presented.
