Essais en centrifugeuse et technique de la modélisation

Scott, R. F.


This paper first makes a review of the different full-scale geotechnical tests that can be or have been carried out in order to examine which of them are appropriate for centrifuge experiments. Then the discussion is centered on scaling relations and requirements for similarity of model and prototype behaviour. From postulates based on the Camclay rheological model, a method is proposed by which 1 g reduced scale model tests may represent properly the behaviour of prototype problems.
