The geotechnical centrifuge from University Gustave Eiffel






The geotechnical centrifuge from University Gustave Eiffel is based on its campus in Nantes. It allows studying using reduced scale models the mechanical behaviour of geotechnical structures, such as foundations, off-shore anchorages, embankments and retaining walls (radius 5.5 m; 2 Tonnes embeddable under a maximum acceleration of 100 g).
