    Abstract

    A general discussion is given as to how microcomputer based data acquisition systems can be used in centrifuge model testing. Special attention is paid to the transmission of signals from the rotating section to the stationary section of the system. Both the direct and indirect methods of signal transmission are illustrated. Examples of applications are cited. It is concluded that the adoption of a computerized system can greatly enhance the accuracy and speed of the data acquisition process for centrifuge model studies of geotechnical structures.
