Comparison of a 1g and centrifuge model dynamic liquefaction test: Preliminary results


As part of the examination of a recently-derived scaling relation for 1g laboratory tests, a laminar box for a shake table was constructed and used to contain saturated soil in a model scaled to represent the performance of a previous dynamic centrifuge liquefaction test carried out as part of the VELACS project (Arulanandan and Scott, 1993, 1994). A comparison of the results of the 1g and centrifuge tests was made in a preliminary investigation of the efficacy of the method. Liquefaction developed in both centrifuge and 1g tests.
