The sensitivity of loess collapsibility is generally considered as the difficulty, speed and size of loess collapsibility after water immersion. It is different from collapsibility of loess, but they are related to each other. In this paper, the time to complete 90% collapsibility and the coefficient of collapsibility are used to evaluate the collapsibility sensitivity of loess and its site. The method is verified by taking the site with excessive collapsibility as an example. The results show that the method can accurately reflect the collapsibility sensitivity of collapsible site, and has certain guiding significance for engineering construction on collapsible site. In addition, the method is simple, scientific, and can be combined with the current specifications, so it is easy to be accepted and promoted by the industry, and is a useful supplement to the existing few researches on loess collapsibility sensitivity.
