On 28 September 2018, a magnitude Mw 7.5 earthquake struck the central Sulawesi region of Minahasa Peninsula of Indonesia. The epicenter of earthquake was located at about 80 km north of the provincial capital Palu of Sulawesi, with a focal depth of 10 km. Extensive damage was caused to the transportation systems, bridges, earth structures and residential buildings due to the widespread lateral spreading and flow failures. This lecture will focus on the geotechnical related damage due to the long distance flow failures of ground with less than 1 to 2% inclination. Some probable mechanism (Hypothesis) will be explained relating to such unprecedented failures during the earthquake.
