    Abstract

    A review is presented of the need for simulation of effects associated with tide, rainfall, temperature variations, etc., in geotechnical centrifuge models. Interest in the overall theme was generated by a perceived need to model rainfall in long-term testing of models of an embankment which was otherwise found to dry out. The system used to overcome this particular problem is outlined, and results are presented. Experience of the authors and others in the wider field is summarized.
