Static liquefaction of soil is a hazard that has caused a lot of damage to humans. Therefore, this phenomenon has been studied for a long time over the world, nevertheless, research on this issue in Vietnam is still limited. This paper presents the results of several triaxial tests under undrained conditions to evaluate the influence of some fundamental factors on the static liquefaction of Fontainebleau sand. The results show that the relative density and the confining pressure have a significant influence on the static liquefaction of the sand. When the density of the sand increases, the liquefaction resistance of the sand increases, until a certain limit, the sand changes from liquefaction behavior to dilatancybehavior with a decrease in pore pressure and an increase in mean effective stress. When the test is carried out at different confining pressures, the greater the confining pressure, the higher the liquefaction resistance.
