Proceedings of the Symposium on Recent Advances in Geotechnical Centrifuge Modeling

(1984)

Cover: Proceedings of the Symposium on Recent Advances in Geotechnical Centrifuge Modeling, National Geotechnical Centrifuge, Department of Civil Engineering, University of California Davis

Introduction: A symposium on Recent Advances in Geotechnical Centrifuge Modeling was held on July 18-20, 1984 at the University of California at Davis. The symposium was sponsored by the National Science Foundation's Geotechnical Engineering Program and the Center for Geotechnical Modeling at the University of California at Davis.

The symposium offered an opportunity for a meeting of the InternationalCommittee on Centrifuges of the International Society for Soil Mechanics and Foundation Engineering. The U.S. participants also met to discuss theadvancement of the centrifuge modeling technique in the U.S. A request is being transmitted to the American Society of Civil Engineers to establish a subcommittee on centrifuges within the Geotechnical Engineering Division.
