    A geotechnical centrifuge has been employed to model diffusion of contaminants through fractured and intact rock mass. This paper deals with the details of the test setups used for this purpose. The obtained results have been compared with those obtained from the conventional diffusion tests and the validity of the modeling of models has been demonstrated. The study demonstrates the usefulness of the geotechnical centrifuge for modeling the diffusion of contaminants through rock mass in a short time.
