In this paper, an alytical approximation for the evaluation of the pore pressure and effective stresses in marine sediments under combined wave and current loadings is derived. Unlike previous investigations, non-linear interactions between waves and currents are considered in this study. An alytical solution for the wave-current induced oscillatory soil response in marine sediment is presented first. Based on the proposed alytical solution, a parametric study for the liquefaction potential will be carried out. Parametric study results indicate that the influence of current and non-linear waves on the maximum liquefaction depth is significant.
