Earthquake - scale modeling in the geotechnical engineering field

研究成果: Chapter

抄録

In the geotechnical engineering field, scale modeling plays a very important role. Downscaled models are used because the targets of geotechnical engineering are usually huge, e.g., a dam, reclaimed land, a slope, or the base ground of various kinds of structures. However, since the characteristics of soils depend on the confining pressure, special treatment needs to be given to soils in these geotechnical models. In this paper, the types of problems which may be encountered in geotechnical engineering and the characteristics of soils are introduced. Then a special use of the scale model in geotechnical engineering is explained using problems involving a seawall, an underground structure, and a slope as examples of its potential application.
