WP2: CENTRIFUGE TESTING
September 2023: Centrifuge test SW_01
Description: Preliminary centrifuge test consisting on the application of lateral loading on top of a suction anchor and one pullout test. Anchors installed in reconstituted soft clay (Speswhite kaolin)
Outcomes: definition of the model geometry in terms of the soft clay thickness profile and definition of the model preparation methodology for the following tests.
Application of photogrammetry to obtain a digital version of the model after the loading tests. With this method there is the possibility to explore the deformed shape of the ground surface-anchor regiion. In addition, the digital model mesh allows to obtain additional data as transverse profiles and digital elevation models to identify rupture surfaces.
