Question 1 – Centrifuge modelling 2020年3月16日

The most common question asked of centrifuge workers is how can centrifuge modelling be justified if the soil particles are not reduced in size by a factor of N. In increasing the model scale to the prototype in the mind’s eye, it might appear sensible to also increase the particle size. Thus a fine sand used in a 1:100 scale model might be thought of as representing a gravel.

But by the same argument, a clay would then be thought of as representing a fine sand?
