The bearing capacity of footings on sand and subjected to inclined-eccentric loads was measured for a series prototype cases. Parameters tested included multiple footing L/B, relative densities, and footing embedment depths.
UF ESSIE’s Centrifuge Laboratory houses a 1.5-meter beam centrifuge with a 12.5 g-Ton capacity and can test models in a high G (90 times earth’s gravity) environment. Models can be built or placed into rectangular or cylindrical containers up to… Read More
The bearing capacity of 20 ft tall MSE walls with 10 ft non-extensible reinforcement and on a 26° slope was tested with equivalent small scale centrifuge models. Axial laid was applied to achieve general shear failure and the measured resultant… Read More
