University of Dundee Variable Direction Dynamic Cyclic Simple Shear Case Study

Mr. Efthymios Apostolou and Dr. Andrew J. Brennan from the Civil Engineering department of the University of Dundee, planned to carry to out some advanced physical modelling techniques in the Universities centrifuge. However, before using large amounts of soil in a centrifuge model and testing it under earthquake motions, it is necessary to test the material under shearing to check its behaviour, in particular liquefaction.
