Geocentrifuges accurately scale models of structures embedded in soil by scaling
time and acceleration in proportion to the geometric scale factor. Such tests accurately
demonstrate geodynamic phenomena such as soil-structure interaction, embankment failure,
and nonlinear soil behavior. These centrifuges can be equipped with video imagining
and failure line detection, pneumatic actuators, and seismic shake tables. The ANCO
software program, CENTRIVIEW, provides for PC-based control and data acquisition.
