    Abstract

    A review is provided of the experience gained in operating a large purpose-built geotechnical centrifuge over a period of eight-and-a-half years from its commissioning in 1971. The physical development of the centrifuge and its associated equipment are reported together with details of the arrangements for operating and staffing the laboratory. Safety considerations are outlined. Some broad conclusions are drawn from the accumulated experience gained in almost 500 centrifuge runs.
