The Use of a Centrifuge in Geotechnical Engineering Education



Geotechnical centrifuges have been seen to date principally as research machines. A role is now suggested in which centrifuges of modest size and cost can contribute usefully to the education and training of geotechnical engineers in college laboratories. One such machine, which has been used in teaching for 15 years, is described, and examples of the results of a series of simple demonstrations are shown.
