SUMMARY The Center for Geotechnical Modeling at UC Davis operates a 9.1-m radius geotechnical centrifuge equipped with a 2 m x 1 m servo-hydraulic shaking table. This equipment has been used in geotechnical earthquake engineering research since 1994. In October 2000, UC Davis was selected as a host equipment site on the National Science Foundation's George(More)
We present a system that visualizes displacement, acceleration, and strain that were measured during an earthquake simulation experiment in a geotechnical centrifuge. Our visualization tool starts by reading the data describing experiment setup and displaying this data along with icons for the sensors used during data acquisition. Different sensor types(More)
This report presents the results of six large-scale centrifuge model tests that were performed to study the effects of relative density and thickness of the sand layer on the amount of settlement and lateral spreading of liquefied soils. The models included a " river " channel with clay flood banks underlain by layers of loose and dense sand of variable(More)
