dc.description.abstract The Department of Civil Engineering at the University of Pretoria has recently been awarded a grant from the National Research Foundation (NRF) to acquire a geotechnical centrifuge. Geotechnical centrifuges are used to accelerate soil models to create a stress field in the model analogous to that occurring in the full-scale situation being modelled. At present there are approximately 110 geotechnical centrifuges around the world and only one in Africa, namely at Mansoura University in Egypt. en_US
