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

Deltares’ CLARIFIER Project: Centrifuge modelling of peat embankments

As part of ‘CLARIFIER: Centrifuge modelling of peat embankments’ which was selected for GEOLAB’s first call for proposals, peat samples have been collected in Norway. These samples were collected 2,000km north of the Deltares facility and are being tested in order to devise an innovative solution in how to construct road embankments in peatlands.   Marianne
