Caption: This installation at the Geotechnical Centrifuge Laboratory is designed and used to ensure building safety by predicting the behaviour of ground motion during an earthquake.Accurate predictions of ground motion are vital for improving building safety in the event of earthquakes. At the Geotechnical Centrifuge Laboratory, ground motion caused by earthquakes or other disruptive forces is recreated by generating centrifugal forces and applying large gravitational force to a ground sample. This facilitates developing effective solutions against such ground-related problems, including liquefaction, long-term subsidence, and deformation as well.
