Earthqueke is one of the most frequent disaster in Indonesia, Earthqueke have caused losses both in terms of life and material. An earthquake also can trigger to soil liquefaction. Attention to liquefaction in Indonesia has raised after the Palu Earthquake in 2018. Liquefaction may happen in sandy soil in certain condition. Here, a series laboratory tests to study potentially liquefied in sandy soils is conducted. The liquefaction potential of sand are analyzed with the effect of the shape of the soil particles. The sandy sample is made up by special selected in three different shapes that are sharp, angular and round. Finally, it can be seen the effect of the shape of the soil grain on the liquefaction potential. The results of this study can be used to further investigation in order to mitigate the liquefaction.
