Abstract

This "State-of-the-Art" paper focuses primarily on aspects of dynamic centrifuge modeling related to simulation of earthquake effects. New shaker mechanisms and model containers are described and soil- container-shaker interaction is discussed. Progress in dealing with scale effects such as particle size, rate dependent material properties and conflicts in dissipation and generation time scale factors is also described. Issues related to repeatability and value of model testing are also discussed.
