Structural analysis of new devices to be used in centrifuge facilities can be a challenging task. Initial calculations, based on simple basic static principles, are usually used. However, as devices placed in a geotechnical centrifuge are often complex structures, advanced analysis methods to assess their performance under enhanced acceleration...

Correct scaling of breach analysis of river levees is a challenging task that is not easily accomplished by physical modelling. Several small-scale physical model tests have been conducted at 1-g level, which cannot truly represent the stress-dependency of soils, whereas the scaling issues arising from centrifuge modelling have not been fully...
