Summary

Geotechnical physical modelling has become a popular, powerful and versatile tool for studying geotechnical problems. The basic mechanism of a given geotechnical problem can be thoroughly examined and parametric studies can be conducted to identify the effects of various influencing factors without the need for costly field tests. Engineers are able to understand and appreciate geotechnical problems in considerable detail and make better and more sound decisions when designing and analysing complex geotechnical problems.In this comprehensive book the authors set out best practice testing techniques and outlines appropriate precautions so engineers can appreciate the practical significance of the test findings. It includes rarely covered topics such as large shaking table tests and pressure chambers tests, and includes novel techniques.
