|Description:||This is a dynamic centrifuge test of a set of flexible retaining walls with sandy backfill. The objective of the test is to measure earth pressures and strains on the retaining walls, settlement of the backfill and accelerations throughout the model and then compare these results to another test where a layer of EPS has been added between the walls and the backfill. This will allow us to test the seismic isolation efficiency of EPS geofoam.|
