An extensive large-scale laboratory model testing program was developed to assess the behavior of drilled shafts under lateral and moment loading. Because of the large scale of the testing, little information was available in the literature on sand deposit and test preparation or on test conduct and monitoring. In this paper, guidance is presented on these preparation and testing issues, and typical results are presented to illustrate the variability of the test results.
