Small-scale testing under 1 g conditions as well as in the centrifuge presupposes that a model and prototype have comparative behavior. The chief condition for agreement between model and prototype is that the initial soil states of both must be at equal proximity to the steady state line. Then, when stresses are normalized to the initial mean stress, the model will in all aspects behave similarly to the prototype. Scaling rules are presented that indicate the relations between stress, strain… Expand
Scaling Considerations for 1-g Model Horizontal Plate Anchor Tests in Sand
This paper addresses scaling issues related to small-scale 1-g model tests on plate anchors in sand under drained loading conditions. Previous centrifuge studies from the literature have suggestedExpand
Stress and Settlement of Footings in Sand
In current engineering practice, the magnitude of the settlement of a footing in sand, as compared to the settlement of a different size footing in the same sand, is considered to be a non-linearExpand

This paper addresses scaling issues related to small-scale 1-g model tests on plate anchors in sand under drained loading conditions. Previous centrifuge studies from the literature have suggestedExpand
Modelling of Clay Behaviour in Pile Loading Test Using One-Gravity Small-Scale Physical Model
The observations and tests under small scale in 1-gravity condition are intended to obtain a comparative behavior of a model and prototype of geotechnical case by imposing the scaling relations.Expand
Study of Physical Modelling for Piles
Physical modeling due to its simulation ability of real conditions has been developed as a proper method to study engineering issues. In this paper after the introduction of usual physical modelingExpand
An investigation of scaling and dimensional analysis of axially loaded piles
This paper investigates the use of the concepts of similarity and dimensional analysis to interpret results from reduced-scale models of axially loaded piles embedded in sand. These concepts areExpand
Centrifuge tests on strip footings on sand with a weak layer
Tests on small-scale physical models of a strip footing resting on a dense sand bed containing a thin horizontal weak soil layer were carried out at normal gravity (1 g ). The results, reported in aExpand
A field investigation of vertical footing response on sand
This paper presents the results from an experimental programme that studied the factors affecting the bearing resistance of shallow footings in sand. In particular, the tests considered the effectsExpand
Displacement Fields in Footing-Sand Interactions under Cyclic Loading
Soils are subjected to cyclic loading in situ in situations such as during earthquakes and in the compaction of pavements. Investigations on the local scale measurement of the displacements of theExpand
Collapse of a Model Strip Footing on Dense Sand Under Vertical Eccentric Loads
The paper focuses on the behaviour of a model strip footing, resting on a saturated dense sandy soil, subjected to centred or eccentric vertical loading. Experimental tests, carried out on aExpand
