Morton, J., O'Loughlin, C., & White, D. (2016). Centrifuge modelling of an instrumented free-fall sphere for measurement of undrained strength in fine-grained soils. Canadian Geotechnical Journal, 53(6), 918-929. https://doi.org/10.1139/cgj-2015-0242

This paper describes centrifuge tests in which a model free-fall sphere was allowed to free fall in water before dynamically embedding within reconstituted samples of kaolin clay and two offshore natural clays. Instrumentation within the sphere measu... Read More about Centrifuge modelling of an instrumented free-fall sphere for measurement of undrained strength in fine-grained soils.
