Deltares Clarifier Project: Centrifuge Modelling of Peat Embankments

Deltares’ Geo-Centrifuge is used for testing physical scale models of geotechnical engineering systems such as natural and man made slopes, earth retaining structures and foundations. By increasing earth gravity, real stresses can be scaled down to models and for natural processes in soil time can be accelerated and brought back from decades to hours. The
