Abstract: Observations of damages during numerous historical earthquakes have shown that in addition to structural stability, geological factors and site conditions also play a major role in the final stability of structures. Two important types of mentioned geotechnical phenomena that cause ground failure are liquefaction and landslides, which can take many forms: settlement, cracking and fissuring, sinking, surface fault displacement, etc. In the framework of this paper, the presentation of the fault and the effects of site conditions on the damage intensity are presented. This paper also investigates the geotechnical consideration of the Iranian code of seismic resistant design by studying on liquefaction and landslides characters, and finally, effective hazard reduction methods are presented.
